How to make craft

  • Add three tablespoons of bubble solution or dishwashing detergent and two tablespoons of paint to a cup. Mix them together and then add a little bit of water. To prepare the mixture you might want to use lower glasses or dishes. I’ve used plastic cups but I cut them in half so the bubbles get some of the color. If you make a lot of bubbles when they get out of the glass they will be transparent.
  • So when the mixture is ready put the straw inside and make a lot of bubbles. Take the cardboard and kind of slide it below the bubbles so they will stay on the cardboard. Pop the bubbles and you will get a piece of art.
  • Use many different colors and play a little. You can use another technique by putting the straw in the mixture and then place it a little above the cardboard so when you blow the bubble it is straw on the cardboard and when you pop it you will get a colored circle.
    One more advice, use cardboard because if you use regular sheets of paper they can be damaged by all the water sprinkling around. Have fun!
