To make bubble art the kids are going to blow colored bubbles onto a piece of paper. To make the bubbles colored you can either add food dye or paint.

What You Need for Bubble Art

What you need to make Bubble Art at home.
  • Blank White Paper (you can do colored paper but the bubbles show up better on white paper)
  • Plastic cups (for bubbles)
  • Bubbles (buy them at Dollar Tree to save money)
  • Straws or Bubble Wand
  • Construction Paper (optional -to mount your creation)
  • Either Paint or Food Dye (I’ll show you how to make with both)

Directions for Painting with Bubbles

Start by dying the color of your bubbles. Add 4 tbs of bubbles to a throwaway cup and then add your color.

Using Paint add about 2 tbs or a squeeze of the bottle. Then mix to see the color.

When you use paint it will make the color come out darker on your paper. However, we found it harder to blow the bubbles. This might be a better option for older kids.

Using Food Dye add 8 drops of food dye to your bubbles.

Next, get your paper ready. Place your paper in a tray or put something underneath it so your table does not get dyed by the paint.

This would be fun to do in the grass on a nice day too.

Use a Straw or Bubble Wand to start painting with bubbles. Make sure if you are using straws that the kids do not inhale the bubbles. The staws might be better for older kids.

Tip: We found if we dipped the bubble wand in the liquid and then blew a straw through the bubble wand we were able to get bigger bubbles.
