Bubble Painting with Crayola bubbles

Last week I saw a pin for bubble painting and thought I may try it sometime this summer with the kids. The pin called for bubbles and added food coloring. After finding clearance Crayola colored bubbles at Wal-Mart this weekend, I decided to try this activity a bit differently. Not a big activity, just a fun, quick, "this is cool" type activity.

First, they tried blowing the bubbles onto the cement.

Thankfully, they didn't swallow it, just lots of coughing and asking for water. The boys had fun blowing into the straw and making bubbles go outside of the bowls and onto the patio.

After the kids were done blowing bubbles with the straws, I put in 1 tbsp. of baking soda in each bowl to thicken the bubbles up so the kids could paint with it. The bubbles immediately formed a paint consistency and the kids started right in on painting the patio. Oddly, the pink bubbles turned white about a minute after the baking soda was added. The yellow, turned brighter when the baking soda was added.

Another successful experiment!
