How To: Paint A Watercolor Picture, with Bubbles!
That's right - Cakies has made a truly great advancement in the history of craft. She has thought up a way for kids - and adults - to paint by, very simply, blowing bubbles.
All you need is watercolor paper, artist's watercolors (the kind that come in a tube, in a semi-liquid state), bubble wands, and bubble solution. And don't forget some cute jars to mix your colors in!
Yes, it will get messy, and yes, the results are utterly unpredictable - but that's what makes it the perfect summer activity to try out with your kids. Get your art supplies set up in the back garden on a not so windy day, and have at it!
Check out Cakies' blog for plenty of other summery craft inspiration, plus cooking and just plain fun.
