It’s short and sweet today! An inexpensive, simple-to-do, art activity using items you already have in your home. It makes beautiful and fascinating artwork. Enjoy!
Here’s one activity we did today from the Leaping Lilies curriculum
This week’s Theme: Bath Time
Activity Description: Bubble Art: Place some bubbles into a container, add food colouring and mix. Put a straw in the container and blow bubbles until they reach well above the rim of the container, gently place a paper on the bubbles and repeat. Use different colours.
This Activity’s Main Area of Development: Creative Development
Specific Skill: Experiment using different art mediums
O&M’s Ages (at the time of posting this): 2 years + 4 months
This activity is pretty straight forward and doesn’t require a lot of pictures to explain, so here goes!
- Mix the bubbles with the food colouring (encourage your tot to do this)
- Insert a straw into the container and blow!!! (explain that sucking will be yucky!) O accidentally sucked in the mixture even after the warning and she ended up blowing a bubble out of her mouth which made M laugh so hard which in turn made O so happy that she forgot about the yucky taste in her mouth! (We did keep some juice on hand just in case we needed to get a yucky taste out of our mouths)
- Place a piece of paper gently onto the bubbles/cup
- Repeat using different colours
