Steve Spangler Science: Painting with Bubbles

Make colorful prints using bubbles!

We are often asked about coloring bubbles. No matter how you color bubbles, bubbles will always appear clear. If you mix a little bubble solution with paint or Atomic Glow, the bubbles will still appear clear, but the soap will carry some of the color or glow liquid with it. Transfer the bubbles to paper and make these beautiful prints. This is a perfect rainy day activity or summer afternoon project to do with little ones.

ACTIVITY TIME: Allow about 20-30 minutes for this activity. Although, the kids may want to keep blowing bubbles long after the paper dries.
