Continuing my commitment to actually trying the things I find on Pinterest,
I gave Bubble Art a try with Logan. We found this idea from The Chaos and The Clutter. Logan is three and a half and drinks from a big boy cup or from a straw. So I wondered if he would drink it...so we adapted this a bit.
Paper -we used our favorite finger painting paper, which has a glossy side
Paint or Food Colouring
Dish Soap: I used Green Works hoping it would be slightly "better" for him if he drank some
I made a point to explain that we were using soap that we normally use to wash dishes. We smelt it and I explained that it tasted yucky though. I had him help me squirt it out into the small bowls of water.
Then we added some food coloring to each bowl and explained that we blow only out. I figured a bit of soap in his mouth would be gross but not as harmful as bunch of paint -so we used food colouring until I was sure he wasn't going to drink it.
While a bit light, the food colouring did show up on the white paper.
After I knew that Logan got the hang of it, we switched it up to adding a squirt or two of tempra paint to the water
Kalia waiting patiently for her turn to paint (see here!)
Hmmm, maybe this paint isn't so washable after all?
Okay, time to move this to the grass!
Logan liked putting the bubbles right on the page, rather than placing the sheet over the bubbles to make the print...
Our finished products! These would be cute as wrapping paper...
