Today we made red and green bubble-blowing prints, which we turned into an Apple Garland!
I remember doing bubble-blowing painting as a child, do you? It is such a fun way of exploring paint prints!
- 5 ml food coloring(red and green)
- 2.5 ml dishwashing 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 makes bubbles. Blowing bubbles are also great for oral motor skills.
Next, the paper was placed on the bubbles and made these beautiful prints! The red turned out a bit light, but one does get the idea:
After it dried, I cut the print into apple shapes and used some of the green for leaves too. It was added to a string. It makes excellent decor for Fall time;)
A super fun painting activity, with lots of possibilities: use different colors to play with color matching too!
This activity is part of the 2016 Paint-a-thon. You will get over 200 painting ideas from this series; check it out!
