DIY: WATERCOLOR BUBBLE ART

Another instant art project that will definitely be fun for the kids! I am thinking we may do another tomorrow, but this time just using black. I think a black bubble one would be a nice contrast hanging next to these colored ones. Just a word of caution though, do this outside with nothing around that you don’t mind getting a bit of color on. And when they’re done, your kids may just have a smidge of color splatter on their face too. It’s real cute!

If you do any on the instant art projects, just leave a link here as I would love to see it! See last week’s instant art project here.

  1. I might try it this weekend! Sounds like fun!

  2. What a great project! It looks like loads of fun yet so simple. Definitely adding this to my list of things to do with the kids over Summer :)

    Oh, I'm sure this was fun!! :)

  4. How fun that looks! I will definitely be buying some watercolors and letting my kids go to town :) At the beginning of the year we did string art. We poured several different colors of tempura pain onto a palette, and cut yarn and string into various lengths. Each kidlet would take turns dipping their sting into the paint, getting it full of paint, then would stand up, and let the string go. The paper was taped to the ground, so we had lots of line and squiggled paint splatters. They had a blast and just laughed at the way each piece of string would land. They were entertained for a good couple of hours too! I was looking up an example of what we did, and came across this. I thought you would enjoy some of these quick art activities since you always do so much fun stuff with your girls :)
