Bubble Prints

Bubble prints are so much fun! It rained here today, so I thought this would be a good alternative to blowing bubbles outside. I’ve seen this project featured around the preschooler circuit, but I was surprised at how much Emily enjoyed this activity.

To make your own bubble prints, you will need:
1 Drinking Straw
Bubble Solution
Pie Dish
Food Coloring
Fill the bottom of the pie dish with bubble solution about an inch deep. Add a few drops of food coloring. Invite your child over to blow bubbles into the solution using the drinking straw, so the bubbles overflow the pie dish. Be sure to explain not to inhale the bubble solution!
Lay a sheet of paper over the bubbles, and repeat until your paper is covered with bubble prints. It should look something like this….
Experiment with different color combinations! We used blue bubbles with purple paper to make this one, and I couldn’t resist making some bubble prints of my own… Hee hee!

    Hi Valerie, I used your crayon wallet design to make a felt board wallet for a post at Grown In My Heart. The pocket holds felt cut outs instead of crayons. It is not scheduled to post for 2 weeks. I just wanted to check with you to see if you minded me altering your idea. I will give you credit and provide a link. I am asking mainly because it is not on my blog but another that I contribute to. Let me know. Kim

    This is a great idea. It doesn't require a lot of materials and it's not expensive. Saving money and still having fun to entertain children is great!

  3. @ Mama King — Oh, that sounds lovely and I can't wait to check it out! Thanks so much for the link!! I love how you put your own twist on it… what a great idea!

    That would be a pretty background for scrapbooking or for a letter, too.
    Very nice idea.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Ooooo those are cool! I am really enjoying the idea of printing paper with different mediums to make into cards lately. I have been collecting bits of cardstock on sale and that are left over from Logan and Cyan's Montessori work, and I think this would make a great card!
