It’s all about the bubble…paint note cards. I’m not sure there is any child that will tell you they don’t like blowing bubbles in their milk. It’s probably one of my favorite past times personally. Especially when it’s chocolate milk because then it mixes everything up even more. YUM!
Okay, so this craft is not about milk, but it IS about blowing bubbles and making art with them. Bubble painting note cards are a great project for kiddos as it allows them to be a bit messy and they make something really really cool.
Bubble Painting Note Cards
Straws (1 for each cup)
Method dish soap
Watercolor paper or card stock
Craft tray, baking pan, or any protective surface
Fill your small cups about 3/4 of the way with water and one pump of Method Dish
Soap. I love method because that pump is amazing! It makes cleaning up a breeze because I don’t have to pick up a bottle or anything AND it gets everything super clean.
ANYWAY! Stir in 5-10 drops of food coloring into each cup. I tried this with other types of paint and really loved how the food coloring turned out. Tempra paint is also a decent alternative…. and now you know why food coloring is a must have art supply.
Now the fun part! Blow your bubbles! Blow bubbles until they form a dome over the cup. Pile them high.
Place your paper gently on top of the dome until it hits the cup. Then remove and set aside to dry. This should only take a minute so you can move on to another color.
Keep going and experimenting with your color combinations until you’re satisfied or you run out of bubbles. Whichever happens first.
Fold your paper in half to make a card and use your sharpie to write a fun message on the front. You can also use glitter (and glue), stickers, or whatevery you have lying around the house!
Grampa had a lot of fun popping the bubbles too…. So I guess this is a good project for people and cats?
