Nanny Anita's Bubble Painting | Nanny Anita | My Baba

This bubble painting is a great art project to do if you don’t mind a big mess and your children understand that they must not suck anything up their straw, only blow through it.

Make sure you follow my painting board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

You will need:

  • Cups (the shorter the cup the better)
  • Paint
  • Water
  • Straws
  • Paper
  • Plastic cover for the floor (if you have one)
  • And lots of cloths to clean up with

Get your child to choose some colours (my charges chose 3 each), then pour some paint into each of the cups.

In each cup of paint add some water and stir the paint in. You may want to experiment with the amount of water you add, the less you add the more bubbles they will have to blow.

Explain to them that what ever they do, they must not suck up through the floor, as they will end up with paint in their mouths. I would also highly recommend stripping them down to just underwear as this can get very messy!
