Bubble Prints

Here is a cute craft idea or your kids. Its very simple and can provide hours (hopefully) of entertainment. Its called Bubble Printing.
Here is what you will need:
Paper or plastic cups
Dish soap
Tempera paint in various colors
Step 1:
Mix 1/2 cup water, 2 tablespoons of paint and a few squirts of dish soap into a cup. I used red and blue (we did this for a July 4th craft).
Step 2:
Have your child blow through the straw to make a huge mound of bubbles on the top of the cup.
Step 3:
Place a piece of paper on top of the bubbles. When the bubbles pop, they will leave a colorful
pattern on the paper.
Unfortunately it was brutally hot outside the day we did this so we only got a few prints. This could also be a great indoor activity for those rainy days…just spread out some newspaper on the kitchen floor or table and let your little ones have a ball. Also, next time we do this I will mix in more pai-Ont for more vibrant prints. How many different color combinations of bubble prints can you come up with?
