Blowing Bubbles to make ART

Bubble painting. Awesome and fun idea. I'm thinking of taking it a bit further with my grandkids and using a large foam core board then after it dries, placing a few photos of the grandkids, maybe even having them each do a separate board of their own and putting individual pictures of each on the board they did. Mod Podge over the top to seal it - wahlah! beautiful individualized wall art!!

In Discovery we made some beautiful art work using Dish washing liquid and Dye
What you’ll need:
paint/dye/food colouring – lots of colours
dish soap
watercolour paper
1. I didn’t use measurements, but just pour some paint, a little dish soap and a small amount of water in a cup. Mix it up. If the colour is too light, add more paint. If not bubbly enough, add more soap. You get the drift.
2. Put the straw in the cup and blow until bubbles come up over the cup. Make sure your child is old enough/able to do this.
3. Grab your watercolour paper and pop the bubbles on your paper. Repeat with whatever colours you want.
4. Allow to dry.
