Bubble Art

This recipe is guaranteed to keep the TV turned off, and, best of all, cleanup is surprisingly easy. You can make note cards and stationery with bubble prints.

What You Will Need:

1/2 cup bubble solution
Small plastic bowl
2 tablespoons tempera paint
White typing paper cut in halves or fourths
Drinking straw

Pour the bubble solution into the bowl. Whisk in the tempera paint. Use the straw to blow into the bubble solution and make a heap of bubbles. Remove the straw and gently lay a piece of paper over the bubbles. The paper will absorb the paint and make a print of your bubbles! Or, blow the bubbles like crazy until they're spilling out of the bowl and onto paper next to the bowl. When the bubbles pop, they will leave their print.
