Bubble Painting

Bubble painting is fun because everytime we do it we create something different and unique.
The main thing is to blow not suck through the straw!

Materials needed:
Paint or food colouring
Dishwashing liquid
Dish or tray
Paper - any paper works but the absolute best is water colour paper

Choose a place where you don't mind making a mess.
Mix together the paint (or food colouring) and some washing up liquid.
Whisk it up to make it frothy.
Place in a tray or large flat dish. (we used an aluminium pie plate)

Add some water until it is the right consistency to blow bubbles.
Use the straw to blow into the mixture to make bubbles.
Gently place the paper on top of the bubbles.
Lift paper away to reveal your bubble print.
Leave to dry OR repeat whole process with another colour if you like.

This one was made with the brightest paints we could find.
