Bubble Prints

Have you ever made prints from something? What about BUBBLE prints? We had never heard of this before, but when I was looking through an art book and saw it, I decided we had to give it a try.

It was really simple to do, and they turned out great. It is a little messy, as you can imagine, but it was worth it!

First, gather your materials: (isn't that what all good instructions say? )

Small containers about half-full of water
An old tray or pan
Heavy paper or cardstock

(It is really very simple)


+ paint (don't be afraid of using too much, it takes a tablespoon or so in this much water)

+ soap

Use the straw to blow bubbles, and then pop them with the paper! If you get bubbles stuck to your paper, leave them untill they are gone, they make a darker print that way.

Have fun, be creative, use your imagination! I thought this would be great for a background page. Try drawing bright tropical fish or a rubber ducky on your bubbles after it has dried.
