What a beautiful sunny week it’s been here in our Cart Mill garden. The children have been so busy all week. We have been taking part in a wide range of learning experiences, such as arts and crafts, throwing and catching games, science experiments and singing and performing shows on our very on stage. But we saved the best for last. BUBBLE PAINTING.
The children mixed paint with the bubble mixture and dipped in the bubble wand. Then it was time to blow the mixture and create unique, one of a kind masterpieces.
It was so much fun seeing the different patterns we made by blowing the paint through the various shapes wands.
We talked about the marks they made when the water droplets landed on the paper and what happened when we the colours began to mix on the paper, resulting in a tie-dye effect.
It was so much fun making our arts and craft science experiments in our sunny garden. I wonder what we can create next.
Have a lovely weekend everyone can’t wait to hear all about it when you come back next week.
I hope you are all well and keeping busy.
Today, I wanted to share with you how to make bubble snakes.
What you will need is
- 🐍 a plastic bottle
- 🐍 a sock
- 🐍 scissors
- 🐍 washing up liquid
- 🐍 a cup of water
- 🐍 food colouring (optional)
- 🐍 measuring spoon
- 🐍 bowl
First get an adult to cut the bottom of the bottle off.
Then put a sock over the bottom.
Measure one cup of water into your bowl. Next measure 2 tablespoons of washing up liquid, pour into the water and mix.
Dip the sock end into the water/washing up liquid mixture.
Blow through the neck of the bottle to make your snake.
Even the big kids had fun blowing bubbles. I hope you have as much fun as we did.
We did try adding food colouring to our sock to make the bubbles colourful but I’m afraid it didn’t work for us. Maybe you could experiment and see if you can make a colourful snake.
Let see how long you can make your bubble snake. 🐍
Love Fiona 😁
