Bubble Painting Tips for Success

For this project, you will need to use either food coloring or acrylic paint to color the bubble solution. It can be done in either way successfully.

If blowing bubbles with a straw, you may want to use food coloring as it is non-toxic if accidentally ingested. You may also want to stick with this way of bubble painting with children who are old enough to understand how to blow out of a straw instead of sucking into it.

If blowing bubbles with a bubble wand you can choose to use acrylic paint to mix in with the bubble solution instead. This will be messier but will create pictures with more vibrant colors. Keep in mind that depending on the paint used this may stain clothes if it gets on them.
