It’s Monday!  That means it’s time for Making It Monday.  Some weeks the crafts will be super simple, some times they’ll be a bit more complex, and sometimes they’ll be perfect for toddler participation.  Regardless you can be sure that you’ll always find something adorable with instructions so easy to follow that even the craft-challenged will be able to replicate the project in their own home – promise!

Today while eating lunch my niece, Kenzie, was using her straw to blow bubbles in her glass of milk.  And somehow that got me to think of a fun craft to do with my kiddos.  Because really what’s more fun than blowing bubbles?  Oh wait – I know… painting with bubbles!  And here’s how ya do it.

Painting with Bubbles

Materials & Supplies:
Watercolor Paper, Acrylic Paints, Dish Soap, Water, Plastic Cups, Straws

Painting with Bubbles

Directions:
1.)  Now there is no exact science to this… so bear with me.  Mix a BIG squirt of paint with a few drops of dish soap.  Add a little water.

2.)  Using the straw mix the paint, dish soap, and water together.  Then use the straw to blow bubbles in the cup.  If the bubbles aren’t reaching the top of the cup you will need to add a little more water.  Little kids will love blowing the bubbles, but make sure they are old enough to understand they can only blow the bubbles and not suck the mixture up into their mouth.

4.)  Take a piece of watercolor paper and once the bubbles are at the top of the cup gently place the paper over the cup so that the bubbles pop on it.  Then repeat and repeat and repeat until your paper is covered!

Once the bubble art dries it would make a fun scrapbook paper background or to use for a birthday/thank you/get well soon card.  I think it would even look fun simply framed and hung on the wall.

So grab the kids and blow some paint bubbles!  This is definitely a craft they are sure to love and will score you some major mom points, hehe.  Just be warned that this is messy… especially with kiddos that like to blow the bubbles til they are overflowing out of the cups.  I highly recommend doing this craft outside and with a big mat underneath you or at least some newspaper.  I used my big BooginHead SplatMat.
