Bubble Painting

Assalm alykom:

Here is a quick and easy project for all ages. Be prepared to do it in a safe area because it is very messy. Here is how we did it:

Materials needed:
  • Paper(I used colored construction paper and white paper)
  • Dish soap
  • Bowls
  • Straws
  • Food coloring or tempra paints

Directions: Put water and dish soap in a bowl. You then add either tempra paints or food coloring. If you have little ones, I would use food coloring because it is more safe. Then you put your straw in the mixture and blow bubbles. Make sure you are in an area that you do not want to spill the mixture. Also, make sure your children are wearing a smock. When they start blowing the bubbles, the colors splash everywhere. When the bubbles are filling up in the bowl, gently place your paper over them. It makes a nice print on the paper.

Here are some more:

My kids made them into cards and sent them to their pen pals.

Assalaamu alaykum

A friend of mind developed art activities around the theme of the Prophets (alayhimus salaam). She did the bubble art activity as part of the theme on Prophet Yunus (alayhis salaam) - having her kids pretend that they were whales. She covered the table in paper and each child was given a different colour "paint" to blow onto the paper.

Sounds like fun. I will try it soon insha allah.

wasalaamu alaykum
