Tips

  • The bubble/paint solution is also fun when bathing, just be sure to clean up right away or it will stain.

Things You'll Need

  • Newspaper (or something else to cover the surface you'll be working on)
  • Construction paper or poster board (you could use standard printer paper but it has a tendency to soak through rather quickly)
  • Several bottles of bubble solution (either homemade or store bought works fine)
  • Various colors of tempera or acrylic paints
  • Bubble wands (one for each color)
  • Small bowls or cups (One for each color and make sure you don't plan on eating out of these later. A good idea is to use disposable plastic or paper cups).
