I mean, come on- who doesn't like bubbles?
Here's what you need:
First, you put a few tablespoons of soap into your shallow dish. Specific amounts don't really matter because you can adjust consistency at any point during the activity.
Each child (who can safely) gets a straw to blow through, creating as many bubbles as possible. Bubbles should be piling up high over the container. Then, the child should press their paper onto the bubbles, forcing them to pop, and therefore make prints on the paper.
The result is like this:
One other "process" note: we found that the soap/water/paint mixture lost its efficacy after a few good prints, and we were not successfully able to just add more ingredients to improve the bubble count. Instead, we wound up making a few batches so that each child could have their own turn.
I absolutely love the finished prints- we're making them into greeting cards! I'd love to know what you will use your prints for!
