Bubble Painting for St. Pat’s!

IMG_0672Preschoolers and bubbles go together like peanut butter and jelly. So, today we bubble painted!!! It was the perfect antidote to being trapped indoors. 🙂

I tried a new way of bubble painting. First, I filled empty yogurt containers with bubble mixture (about 1/3 full). Then I added about a teaspoon of paint.

When the students arrived, I told them we’d be painting in a new way … and that we needed to practice a few things first.

First, we needed to practice blowing OUT of the straw instead of sucking in. I warned them that the paint would taste yucky (it’s nontoxic, but still).

So, we blew like the wind. Then, we held our straws in one hand to blow out through them, and put our other hand in front of the straws to feel the air. Then we blew at our friends and laughed.

Next, we sat down at our tables. The yogurt containers were in the middle of our papers. We put our straws in the mixtures, and stirred very gently. Then, we blew gently and slowly … giant green bubbles!

We had a messy good time. And now we have green circles to make our shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day!!!
