Bubble Pictures

This is best done outside as it can get messy, especially with young children.

Items Required

  • plastic cup
  • powder paint / poster paint
  • paper
  • straws
  • dishwashing detergent (liquid soap)
  • water
  1. In the cup, mix a spoonful of paint, spoonful of detergent and quarter cup of water.
  2. Blow bubbles in the mixture with the aid of the straw until they almost overflow the cup.
  3. Place paper onto the bubbles.
  4. Allow to dry.

You can do this with a few different colours to build up the picture.

(note : You may want to add more or less of each ingredient depending on the strength of the detergent you use)
