Bubble painting! So much fun. This is a great mindful art activity.
You will need :
🌻 A bowl with some dishwashing liquid and water
🌻 Add in about 10 drops of food colouring. You need quite a bit.
🌻 A straw
🌻 Watercolour paper works best but ordinary paper is also ok
Let the child blow the liquid mixture until there are lots of bubbles. You can chat to them about the breath and how amazing it is to form such beautiful bubbles.
Then either plop the paper on top of the bubbles (you might need to do this a few times) or scoop up the bubbles on to the paper and let them pop on the paper. The latter gives good, strong patterns.
Once the paper is dry, spend some time looking at the patterns to see what you can find. Do you see a cheetah looking to the left in the picture of this post? 🐯
