What Is Bubble Painting?

Bubble painting is a great craft for kids that uses a few basic art supplies and kitchen products. The paint + bubbles mixture popping onto the paper make fun patterns and splatters. The kids can use their imaginations to create little critters or monsters from their creations, which is an added bonus to all the fun!

Bubble Painting Craft Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies I used for this fun paint project:

  • Small Cups
  • Paint – I used craft paint, but tempera paint or whatever paint you have laying around will do the trick!
  • Soap – I used the dish soap from under my kitchen sink, but you could use any soap or bubble solution you have.
  • Water
  • Spoon or Craft Stick- This is to stir and mix paint mixtures in the cups.
  • Paper – I used small poster board, but you could use canvas, cardstock, or construction paper.
  • Straws
  • Plastic Table Cloth/ Old Sheet- You’ll definitely want something to protect your surface!
  • Embellishments – Markers, glue, googly eyes, pom poms, etc.

How To Bubble Paint

  1. Cover your workspace with a plastic table cloth or towel.
  2. Dip the straw into the bubble paint and then blow out bubbles so they land on the paper.
  3. Allow the paint to dry before embellishing, then go nuts adding scales, legs, eyes, and whatever else you’d like to add to your creations!
