Prior to engaging in this activity, students practice measuring quarts and tablespoon amounts.
Ask students what they already know about bubbles. How are they made? What do bubbles do when you make them? How do floating bubbles make you feel?
Before beginning this activity, be certain children know how to blow out to create bubbles and will not suck in the liquid.
On a day when the weather is favorable, students put on Crayola Art Smocks and walk outdoors with their plastic containers for bubbles and instruments to use as bubble wands. (If the weather is not favorable, students can cover the floor with a shower curtain liner and place recycled newspaper on top of the liner. This will protect the floor.)
Using a quart pitcher, students measure warm water and pour it into a tub. For every quart of water, students add 8 tablespoons of clear liquid dish soap and 6 tablespoons of glycerin (found in drug stores).
Students blow bubbles through straws or paper towel tubes. Shape chenille sticks into bubble-blowing wands.
To make Bubbly Prints, add Crayola Washable Kid's Paint to the water. Stir well. Students blow bubbles onto white construction paper. As the bubbles pop, they leave circles of color.
