I remember doing bubble blowing painting as a child, do you? It is a such a fun way of exploring paint prints! Today we made (light)red and green prints, which we turned into an Apple Garland!
- 5 ml food coloring(red and green)
- 2.5 ml dish washing liquid
- 100 ml water
- Plastic cups
The kids loved the blowing part! My 3.5 year old did suck once, but only once, lol! This activity is a great science activity too: your breath together with the soap making bubbles. Blowing bubbles are also great for oral motor skills.
Next, the paper was placed on the bubbles and it made these beautiful prints! The red turned out a bit light, but one does get the idea:
This activity is part of the 2016 Paint-a-thon. You will get over 200 painting ideas doing this series, do check it out!
