Do your kid love blowing bubbles? Here is a fun twist on that classic childhood summer activity by making Bubble Painting outside. This modern art project is a fun bubble art to hang on your walls.
I love lazy summer days! Kids laughing in the backyard as they play in the sandbox, swing at the playground for hours, slurp popsicles, create masterpieces with chalk on the driveway, splash in the pool or backyard slip and slide, and blow bubbles that float up through the warm summer air.
Bubbles are a classic childhood activity that never seems to go out of style!
Today, we tried a twist on the classic blowing bubbles summer activity, we used our bubble solution to make truly spectacular bubble paintings!
This is such a fun, playful way for kids to create a unique piece of artwork. This project is great for children of all ages. Kids just need to be able to blow bubbles on their own to do this summer activities for kids. Plus blowing bubbles is great for improving oral muscles needed for forming sounds correctly!
You will want to add this bubble painting project for kids to your summer bucket list!
Bubble Painting for Kids
For your bubbles artwork you will need bubble solution (store bought or homemade bubbles), food coloring (like you use for food), a bubble wand, and a piece of paper or canvas.
In small containers mix your store bought or homemade bubble solution with food coloring. Repeat with additional dishes until your child has several colors to paint with.
To make your bubble art projects, you will want to blow your bubbles outdoors as the colored bubble liquid may stain surfaces if not cleaned up promptly.
When the bubble pops on your paper or canvas it makes a lovely splatter effect.
Summer Art Project
I love that this summer painting for kids is part craft for kids, part art project, and part summer activity for kids. Kids from toddler, preschool, pre k, kindergarten, and elementary age kids will love completing this kids activity for summer.
Here is one of our finished masterpieces. I love how the colors mixed on the canvas and made a mix of drips, splatters, and small flicks of color.
My kids loved making their bubble painting and it made such a fun keepsake for our walls too.
