1Gather Your Materials
Make sure you have all of your materials handy before beginning. Keep in mind that younger children may need help with cutting out their flowers and require supervision while using scissors.
2Prepare Your Bubble Mixture
Using your mixing bowl, water, and liquid watercolors, add water to your bowl and mix in the liquid watercolors of your choosing. Our favorite springtime colors for this activity are blue, purple, and red but any color you choose is perfect! You can even add glittery watercolors for more sparkle. Don't forget to add dish soap to your mixture to create your bubbles.
3Watch Your Hydrangeas Bloom!
Once you've mixed together your water, watercolors, and dish soap, encourage children to use a straw to blow bubbles into the mixture. Pay close attention to ensure children don't accidentally drink the soapy mix. Once you have enough bubbles and they reach above the edge of the bowl, place a piece of white card stock flat over the bowl. When removed, the paper should have a colorful, bubbly design! While you wait for your flower to dry, assist children in cutting out leaves for your hydrangeas from green card stock. Once your hydrangea is dry and your leaves are ready, cut out your flower and tape the leaves to the back. Display these beautiful bouquets in your home or classroom for a touch of springtime in any space!
