Bubble Paint Valentines

This year for Valentine’s Day, we decided to do a semi-diy project for my daughter’s class. I randomly found a pack of mini-bubbles in our upstairs craft closet. Who knows what they are left over from!

To go along with our little bubbles, we made some fun bubble paint cards! These are super easy and waaaay fun!

All you need is some cardstock, cups, straws, liquid soap, acrylic paint and water!

Pour about a tablespoon of water into each glass.

Then add a squirt of paint.

Then a big squirt of soap.

Mix it all together and start blowing! Yes, like the thing you’ve been telling your kids not to do because it’s rude? Let ’em do it!

Once the bubbles start coming out of the glass, smash the cardstock down on top of them! They’ll pop and make pretty designs on the paper!

We actually found they made darker prints when we just kept the paper on top of the cup and blew bubbles onto it.

You might have to experiment with your measurements in the cups–we added more paint when we wanted darker colors and more soap when we felt like we needed it. It’s not an exact science! Or you can be like my daughter and blow into four cups at one time!

After it was all dry (and the mess wiped up), we cut the cardstock into little squares and wrote notes on them. I racked my brain to think of a Scripture that talked about bubbles. But I guess those hadn’t been invented yet! 😉

Instead we went with, “POP-ing into say God Loves You!” and “God’s Love BUBBLES up for you!”. We’re going to tape them to the bubbles and deliver them on Valentine’s Day! Cute, huh?

Can you think of any other good bubble puns for me?
