7.6.11: Bubble art & volcano eruption activity

For our learning playdate, which is held fortnightly, we did a bubble art and volcano eruption activity.

Bubble Art
Items required:

  • shampoo / liquid detergent 
  • food colouring
  • straw
  • container (small to medium size. The big ones won't work). 
  • blank paper

  1. Pour a little shampoo / liquid detergent, water and food colouring into a container.
  2. Mix them up and blow bubbles in the solution. 
  3. Make sure that the bubbles are over the top of the container.
  4. Press a piece of blank paper over the top of the bubbles.
