Bubble Painting

Here is a messy and fun painting adventure for your preschooler.

What you’ll need:

  • Non-toxic colored paint
  • Paper (non-absorbent paper works best)
  • Plastic straws

What to do:

  1. The children will suck the runny paint up with their straws, and blow it in different directions onto the paper, creating patterns. Make sure they don’t suck it all the way in and swallow it.
  2. They could use one color and add white for different tones, or they could use different colors.
  3. Repeat several times with different colors of paint.

Remember, for bubble painting the consistency of the paint needs to be runny as well as easy to suck up a straw, so you may want to add a little water!
