A wonderful sensory activity for kitchen or garden table!
- Pour the Bubble Paint into a container.
- Dip the bamboo bubble foamer in the bubble paint, lift it and let drip, then blow! Drop the clouds of painty bubble foam on to your paper/card.
- Put a small amount of bubble paint into a cup, put in the bamboo straw, and blow! Bubble mountains will grow out of the cup - scoop them up and drop onto your paper/card - or place your card/paper upside-down over the bubbles emerging from your cup!
- Wait for your work of art to dry.
- As the paint trickles through the bubbles in the foam, and down onto the paper you will see bubble pattern textures start to appear!
