Bubble Art!

On Monday, we had off from school for MLK and it was so snowy and cold, so that worked out well! It was pretty glorious. I finished a whole book, cleaned the kitchen and we did crafts all in out PJs. Not too shabby, I think.

My sister in law posted this awhile idea awhile back and we finally had some time to sit down and do it! This ones for you Jenny!
Cute little bubble art!

For this super easy craft you need:

Dish soap
Cups or bowls
All that's missing is cardstock!
First squirt the paint in the cup. Next add a squirt of dish soap. Last fill the cup with water. 
Not a lot of measuring happened with this we just poured it in adjusted as necessary. We ended up adding in a lot more pain especially with the lighter coral and turquoise color and titch more dish soap. When the mixture was too watery the bubbles were too small to make an impression on the paper.

Next give it a stir with the straw. Then start blowing bubbles!

We realized our cups were too small to get those oh, so, bubbly bubbles. So we poured our paint mixture into larger bowls and that seemed to do the trick!

Have your paper ready while you are blowing the bubbles and then once they get big and fluffy, press the paper down over the top of the bowl. That's it!

They came out SO super cute! A side note--Dark colors worked much better as they showed up. Another side note--DO NOT suck up with the straw, gross.

Clean up was also crazy easy as the mixture was mostly soap anyway!
Such a fun idea! Thanks Aunt Jenn!
Light colors came out pretty, but were more subtle than the navy blue!

I am not sure what we are going to do with them yet. Callie originally wanted to frame them and put them in her room, but her walls are filling up super fast!
I am thinking hallway art...
