The Creative Process

  • Mix equal amounts of water and dishwashing liquid in the square pan.
  • Add tempera paint to the mixture.
  • Cut a tiny hole into each straw to prevent the children from drinking the mixture. Give each child a straw.
  • Encourage the children to take turns blowing into the paint mixture to fill the pan with bubbles.
  • Show the children how to gently touch the paper to the bubbles, creating a bubble print.
