Bubble Art

Blowing a mixture of liquid soap, paint, and water through a straw make colourful bubbles that can turn a surface into beautiful art when popped. This is a craft I like to do with my little nieces and nephews, but I blow the bubbles so they don't accidentally ingest anything. This can also be done with water soluble food colouring.

Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Add a few drops of dish soap and a few drops of acrylic paint into a cup.
  2. Mix with your straw. Add a few tablespoons of water, then mix again.
  3. Use the straw to blow enough bubbles to come out of the cup a bit.
  4. Gently place your paper over the bubbles.
  5. The bubbles will pop and leave a colourful imprint on the paper.
  6. Try different colours of paint in different sized containers.
  7. Repeat to pop on the same paper.
  8. To make darker, more saturated imprints, blow more bubbles then lay them onto the paper to sit a bit.
  9. Continue with more colours. These make excellent book covers.

Loved Barbara of ThrifyFun's newsletter post about this project:

"Remember when you were a kid and loved to blow bubbles in your drink? Well put the age old skill to work and create a unique art piece."

That's exactly how it feels to do this art! Thanks, Barbara!
