Nothing says "summer afternoon" like bubbles
. Kids love water play, and bubbles add texture and visual appeal. So what happens when you mix bubble play with art? You get bubble prints -- water color-inspired designs that are both beautiful and and fun to make. Kids just don't get to make bubbles, they get to create multi-colored masterpieces.
Here's what you'll need:
- Bowls -- Preferably different shapes and sizes to add interest. Glass bowls won't be stained by the food coloring. Low bowls -- even flat pans like pie plates -- work best, because you'll use less water and therefore need less food coloring.
- Food coloring (various colors)
- White art paper
- Dish soap
Either find a safe place to work outside or cover your work space with plenty of newspaper, and let's get started.
