Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Bubble Art

This is an easy and fun art activity that can be done as part of a lesson on bubbles.

 Recommended Books:

  • Pop! A Book About Bubbles by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley (Let’s Read & Find Out Science)
  • Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni

Concept: Using food color and liquid bubble mix, kids can make colorful bubble artwork.

Supplies Needed:

  • liquid food color (use various colors)
  • ready-to-use liquid bubble mix
  • small bowls (one for each color)
  • straws (one for each color)
  • one sheet of watercolor paper

Activity: Pour some liquid bubble mix into each bowl. Add a few drops of food color to each one and mix to create individual color bowls. You can create secondary color bowls by using a few drops of two primary colors to reinforce the lesson in the book. Place a straw in each bowl and blow to create bubbles. Hold the sheet of watercolor paper over the bowls so the bubbles being created stick to the paper. By moving the paper over the different colored bubbles, a colorful pattern is created. Once you are done, let the paper sit and dry completely.

Tip: Rather than discarding the leftover colored bubble mix, have the child use it to blow bubbles with different shaped wands.
