Bubbles

Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles!


Pipe Cleaner Bubble Blowers


Bubble Painting
 Add dishsoap to a cup, just enough to cover the bottom.  Squeeze in some paint, and a little bit of water.  Use a straw to blow bubbles until the pour out of the top of the cup.  Let them land on the paper and pop by themselves.

Bubble Snakes
Cut the end off of a plastic water or pop bottle.  Cover with a washcloth using a rubberband to secure it.  Dip the end of the bubble blower into the bubble solution.  Blow in the top and see how long you can make your bubble snake!

 Can you hold a bubble and bounce a bubble?
We Can!



 The solution we used was from Steve Spangler Science.  If you use clean, dry, gloves, you can catch a bubble and bounce it!

Homemade Watercolors

This is an awesome idea I got from Artopotamus!  Take dried up markers and group them by colors.  Put them in cups of water.  Control the colors (lighter/darker) by adding more or less water.  Then pour the watercolor into seperate containers to use as watercolors for painting!
