Play with bubbles a whole new way by painting with them and creating abstract art with the kids! We had so much fun with this simple method which creates cool-looking art every time. Watch the video above and see below for complete instructions.

DIY Abstract Bubble Painting With Kids – Materials:

– Bubble solution (you can make your own like these or purchase solution)

– Paint (we love these neon tempera paints for their bright colors)

– Bubble wands

– Watercolor paper (our favorite one here which shows off the paint beautifully)

– Disposable bowls


You’ll want to add paint to your bowls then bubble solution and mix to combine. We found that for optimal bubble blowing the solution should contain more bubble solution than paint. Also set aside one bowl with water to rinse out your bubble wand in between painting so the colors don’t mix.

Cover your work surface with paper, newspaper, whatever you have on hand and start blowing bubbles directly onto the paper. The trick is to hold the wand directly over the paper and blow slowly to keep the paint from splattering every where.

My daughter loved this easy art project and created some really fun, abstract looking prints in no time.
