Hands-on learning awaits...

Here’s a fun outside art activity for a beautiful day!

Bubble solution, bubble wand or drinking straw, cups, food coloring, paper


  1. Pour bubble solution into cups and add 1-2 drops of food coloring. If you don’t have bubble solution, you can make your own by mixing about 1 teaspoon of dish soap in an inch of water!
  2. Using the bubble wand or a drinking straw, stir bubble solution and food coloring until the color is well mixed.
  3. Here comes the messy part, so be sure to do this project somewhere you can easily clean up (outside or on a countertop work great!) Lay your paper flat on your work surface.
  4. Dip the bubble wand or straw in the bubble mixture, and then lean over your paper and carefully blow a bubble. The paper will catch the bubbles and any extra drips. Watch what happens when the bubbles pop! Repeat with other colors or until you fill the paper.
  5. Note: If you don’t have any paper, try this activity outside on a driveway or pavement! And even if you don’t have food coloring on hand, experiment with making your own bubble solution to blow homemade bubbles!
