Bubble Painting Craft Ideas For Kids
Bubble painting is a fun and easy way for kids to create their masterpieces. All you need is some paint, bubbles, and a little imagination. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Paint on paper plates or cardboard circles to create bubble pizzas or donuts.
- Use straws to blow the bubbles onto the paper instead of using your hands.
- Create patterns by using different colors of paint or making designs with stickers before you blow the bubbles.
- Turn it into a race to see who can blow the most bubbles onto their paper in one minute.
- See how long you can blow a bubble without popping it.
- Have an adult help the kids cut out shapes from construction paper or foam sheets to use as stamps. Dip them in paint and then stamp them onto your paper.
- Use dot markers or bingo daubers to make circles of different sizes on your paper. Then, blow the bubbles over the dots to make polka dots.
- Paint with transparent bubbles to create a stained glass effect.
1. Bubble Blower Painting
Use a Bubble Blower to make a painting with different colors of paint and blow the bubbles onto the paper. Let the bubbles dry, and then pop them to reveal your picture.
2. Variated Bubble Painting
This is the most fundamental technique, however, you can modify it. To make multi-color bubble circles, you can use multiple tiny pots of different colored bubbles, and print them one at a time on the same sheet (or cluster them together and do them all at once). You could, for example, fill the entire sheet with a large tray of bubbles.
3. Painting With Homemade Bubble Solution
- Dish Soap
- Glycerin or Corn Syrup (this makes the bubbles last longer)
- Mix together equal parts of dish soap, water, and glycerine or corn syrup.
- Pour the mixture into a container that can be sealed (a plastic container with a lid works well).
- Cut small holes in the lid of the container.
- Dip a straw or paintbrush into the mixture and blow through the straw or brush to create bubbles.
- Paint with the bubbles on a piece of paper or canvas.
4. Bubble Imprints
Mix the soapy water with at least 10 droplets of food coloring and make this solution for different colors. With your straw, gently blow into the colored bubble solution until bubbles overflow your cup. Place your sheet over the bubbles gently. The bubbles will create an imprint on the sheet as they pop. Rep with that or other colors until your page is completely covered in popped bubble art.
5. Bubble Painting
Fill shallow pots with bubble solution and add washable watercolors to the solution. Check for vibrancy after stirring and If necessary, add extra. Remove a sheet of easel paper from the easel and place it on a plate outside. You should place the colored bubble solution on the tablecloth.
6. Bubbles And Straws
Fill a small bowl halfway with the ingredients and if you would like more bubbles, keep the 2:2:1 ratio and increase the size. Insert the straw into the bowl and blow into it. Place a piece of paper on top of the bubbles and you’ve got a print!! Voila!
7. Bubble Art With Folk Art
Pour some poster color into a shallow container and add soap solution and some water to the container. Mix it well with the help of a popsicle stick. Now, take a straw and put one end in the container. Blow some air from the other end and let the bubbles pop out of the container. Place the sheet on the top of the container and let the bubbles burst there on the sheet itself. This will leave an impression of folk art on the sheet.
8. Gouache Bubbles
Take Gouache of three different colors and put them in three different containers. Add bubble liquid to the containers ad stir well. Now place one straw in each container and start blowing bubbles. Let the bubbles come out of the containers and fall on the sheet to leave an impression.
9. Bubble Flowers
Take 7 different containers and place them in the shape of a flower. Now add water, soap solution, and 2-3 drops of watercolors to each container. Mix them well with the help of a straw. Start blowing the bubbles in the containers and let them collect at the rim of the containers. Now, place a sheet on the top of the bubbles. You will get an impression of a flower on the sheet. Repeat the process until you get clear impressions.
10. Painting With The Kids
Add half a cup of water, a spray of dish soap, and a generous squirt of paint in a container. Allow the youngsters to go mad blowing mountains of colored bubbles as retaliation for all of the times you’ve ordered them not to blow bubbles in their milk! Give them the paper to collect the imprints of bubbles on.
11. Bubble Artwork
You’re only limited by your imagination when it comes to bubble prints! Using one or more straws, experiment with different colors and sizes of bubbles. When your artwork dries completely, stack it and place it beneath a heavy book to flatten the papers, which should change slightly due to the wetness.
Use your artwork to decorate the walls and windows, make lovely cards with it, save it as one-of-a-kind DIY wrapping paper, rip it apart to construct paper chains to count down to vacation, build beautiful hearts, or butterflies out of it, and so on. The possibilities are infinite!
