I have always loved craft time. Ever since I was a little girl, it was one of my favorite things. I remember pulling out all my mom's craft supplies and seeing what I could create with all the goodies.
Fast forward to today and I have two boys who seem to be go, go, go all. the. time. My oldest, Liam, is currently 4.5 years old and loves to learn but also has about a 5-10 minute attention span when it comes to doing activities. I love to try and do an activity with him each day, but they have to be short and sweet.
Insert this 5-minute bubble art craft. It's super fun and interactive, but it only has to last about 5 minutes if you want it to. Liam loved it and had fun watching the bubbles pop and create colors on the page. This is a great craft to get out of the heat or the rain. It gives their little brains a bit of stimulation and they have fun while doing it! Because who doesn't love bubbles?!
Here are the supplies I used:
- Cardstock paper
- Masking tape
- Bubble solution + bubble wand (I picked up this giant container from Target)
- Food coloring
STEP 1: Pour the bubble solution in a few bowls (we did 3 different colors, so we poured solution in 3 different bowls).
STEP 2: Add a couple drops of food coloring to each bowl.
STEP 3: Use the masking tape to create patterns or letters or numbers on the cardstock paper. Wherever the masking tape is will be left white when you peel it off.
STEP 4: Using the bubble wand, dip it into a bowl of colored bubbles and have your kiddo blow the bubbles onto the sheet of paper. Repeat this step with each color you want to use, rinsing the bubble wand between colors.
STEP 5: Let the paper dry slightly before taking of the masking tape. Then set aside to dry!
