Bubble Painting: a simple spring activity
Need a new and engaging activity using materials you already have? Try bubble painting! It is a simple activity perfect for spring and only requires bubble mix, food coloring, paper, and bubble wands. It is an easy and cheap activity for kids. Continue reading for how-to details and our experience with this activity! Sofia says it is "bubble-tastic" so you will definitely want to try it.
It really is simple. I had all the materials around the house and it took me about 5 minutes to gather/set it up outside. This is what you need:
bubble mixture (we used pre-mixed store-bought)
plates to mix (we did paper plates)
Mix the food coloring and the bubbles together. I did 4 different colors. No measurements, just poured some bubble mix and then did a few drops of the food coloring.
Dip the bubble wand in the colored bubbles
Blow bubbles onto cardstock paper. You can use any paper you have available but we found cardstock kept its shape better as it got wet.
Pop the bubbles and see what happens! Our kiddos were super excited to see the shapes left behind after popping.
Sofie says these are "bubble-tastic" and I have to agree. I found this was perfect for her age group (5-year-olds). Bubba (age 3) thought it was very cool and did his own as well but was done after a few turns. Sofia didn't want to stop and made multiple pieces of bubble painting art!
Overall I totally recommend trying this activity at home. Even if it doesn't kill a bunch of time it is still exciting and engaging for the duration of the activity. Plus this cost me $0. So it was worth it. I will say you 100% want to do this outside and in the grass so you have no major messes. It's the perfect activity for a sunny spring day!
