Bubble Painting

DIY Projects for Kids

The Brook Early Education and Care shares an easy activity for parents to do at home with the kids – great fun guaranteed.

Bubble Painting

Creative activities are the most effective way of letting your child have fun whilst learning, as children are able to experiment and let their imaginations run wild. As children get older, they want to share their creativity with friends and family so it’s important to encourage them; a way of doing so is through bubble painting.


Bubble painting is a classic art activity for children, mainly because it’s cheap and they love it. The Brook Early Education and Care likes to engage children with creative tasks such as bubble painting as it can be quite versatile. You can use the creations as wrapping paper, as gift tags, or even as artwork – just frame them and hang them up as a colourful series.


What you’ll need:


  • 1 bowl/container: you can use an empty ice cream tub, a bucket, whatever holds liquid in it!
  • 2 tablespoons tempera paint (liquid, not powdered)
  • 2 tablespoons dish soap
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Straw/s
  • Paper or cardboard: you can cut it into pieces that match the size of the bowl/container you’ll be using


How to do it:


  • Pour tempera paint, dish soap and water into your bowl/container (If you need a lot of mixture or you want more bubbles, stick to the same 2:2:1 ratio but increase amount).
  • Use your straw to mix liquids around then place the straw into the bowl/container and blow until bubbles rise to the top
  • Place your paper or cardboard on top of bubbles for a second or two then remove and let it dry.


Here’s a tip:


Get different containers for different colours, and let the little ones get creative with colour mixes.


At The Brook Early Education and Care, we encourage children to get involved with creative activities as it is a fun and imaginative way of learning and gaining skills. For more information on our learning programs, click here.
