If your kids like bubbles, then they'll love today's activity! Bubble art is fun, easy, and can be done outside or in your house!

Materials Needed:
  Tempera paint or food coloring
  Paper
  Bubble solution (you can also just mix dish soap and water)
  Small bowls or containers
  Optional- straws


My son made his art two different ways. The first way was to blow bubbles directly onto the paper. I only added a few drops of food coloring to the bubble solution so it didn't come out as bright as I thought would. Next time I'll be more generous with the color!

The second way was his favorite! He made lots of bubbles by blowing into a straw and then laid a piece of paper on top of the bubbles.


Do your kids like bubbles? Do you usually buy bubbles from the store or make your own?

If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Beat the Heat Challenge yet, you can do so here.
