Popped Bubble Art

Popped Bubble Art: I've done this activity with my kids a few times now and it never fails to fascinate them - and me! Simply color bubble mix with food coloring and blow bubbles onto paper - as the bubbles land and pop, they create beautiful works of art. It goes without saying that this project is best done outdoors. A great one for those lazy summer afternoons.

IM NEVER BUYING PAINT AGAIN! Paint - 1 cup salt, 1 cup flour, 1 c water, food coloring.

Veg oil, water, alka seltzer, food coloring, and a bottle. Fill a bottle 2/3 with veg oil and 1/3 with water (keeping in mind to leave 1" at the top). Add 10 drops food coloring. Add 1 alka seltzer (broken in a few pieces, adding one piece at a time - when first piece stops bubbling, add next) and watch the colors.
