Bubble Blower Painting
Bubble Blower Painting is one of our favourites. It's a perfect summer art technique and the painting can be used up in many ways.
Tip a little bubble mixture into each cup, and then add a little food colouring to each one. What colours would you like to add? Stir gently. It’s time to blow bubbles!
