I put out three flat disposable plastic plates, and spread some paint thinly in each one, using a brush. You could use a foam roller if you wanted a perfect result.
I chose harmonious colours in ocean hues. Harmonious colours are next to each other on the colour wheel. If that sounds too complicated, just think of the order of a rainbow, and choose three colours in a row. For instance, you could choose red, orange and yellow. Or, like I did, green, blue, and purple. When you use harmonious colours, they look good even when you blend or overlap them – they don’t clash with each other.
Then pat it onto the paper.
The artists took a few bubble-popping breaks along the way…
Here’s a finished print! I had a plan in mind for these – I’ll share the gorgeous result next week.
While the kids were printing, I set up another little activity for them. I cut long strips of bubble wrap and laid them in a path on the floor. (If I did this again, I’d tape the strips down.)
Then the kids took turns being blindfolded and had to follow the path, using their feet to feel the way. I told them there was a treasure waiting for them at the end!
I just love the facial expressions. Such delight at watching the bubbles be caught by the breeze and whisked up into the air.
Meanwhile, son #2 was busy playing with some bubbles of his own….
It’s the simple things, right?
Next week I’ll share the gorgeous craft we made using these bubble prints as a base! I also have a couple of big room reveals coming up. Stay tuned!
Let’s chat: What is it about bubble wrap, anyway? Any other closet bubble-wrap addicts out there…?
