What Is Bubble Painting?

Bubble painting is a great craft for kids that uses up some of those half-full bottles of bubble solution you have laying around your house! The bubbles popping onto the paper make swirly patterns and splatters. The kids can even try to capture a whole bubble on the paper to make circles.

How To Make Bubble Solution

If you don’t happen to have a bunch of leftover bubble solution, you can easily make your own with a little water and dish soap! Combine two tablespoons of dish soap (Dawn or Palmolive work best!) and one tablespoon of water. Simply mix these together and you have your own homemade bubble solution.

How To Bubble Paint

  1. Add three tablespoons of bubble solution and two tablespoons of paint to a cup.
  2. Mix the paint and bubble solution together.
  3. Place a piece of paper on the grass or a table.
  4. Dip the bubble wand or a straw into the bubble paint and then blow out bubbles so they land on the paper.
  5. Allow paint to dry then hang up the beautiful bubble prints!
