Bubbles

Ideas for Bubbles

Shaving Cream Art
Add a few drops of paint to shaving cream. Have the children use this to paint with. Not mixing the paint in will give it a special look.

Bubble Art
Supply the children with a bowl with bubble mix in it and a straw with a hole near the top to prevent children from sucking the soap up. Have the children blow into the straw while it is in the bowl creating bubbles. Then, have the child place a drop of food coloring on the top of the bubbles and quickly press a piece of paper on the top of the bubbles to create bubble prints.

Bubble Prints
Obtain packing bubbles. Cut them so they are the same size as the paper you would like to use. Have the paint the bubbles. When the child is done painting, before the paint dries, press the paper onto the bubbles to make bubble prints.

Bubble Gum Wrapper Collage
Obtain many bubble gum wrappers. (It may be a good idea to ask parents to help.) Have the children glue the bubble gum wrappers to a piece of paper.

Clean Collage
Have the children cut out ads for cleaning products that make bubbles, like dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. Have the children glue the pictures to a piece of paper.

Bubble Songs & Rhymes

BUBBLES ALL AROUND ME

Sung to: “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”

The bubbles flew over the flowers.
The bubbles flew over the trees.
The bubbles flew over the grass.
So many bubbles, I see.
Bubbles, bubbles
As pretty as bubbles can be.
Bubbles, bubbles
Popping all around me.


DID YOU EVER SEE A BUBBLE?

Tune: “Did You Ever See A Lassie?”

Did you ever see a bubble,
A bubble, a bubble?
Did you ever see a bubble
That floated so high?
It reached the tree.
It’s higher than me.
Did you ever see a bubble
That floated so high?
 

THERE ARE BUBBLES IN THE AIR

Tune: “If You’re Happy And You Know It.”

There are bubbles in the air, in the air.
There are bubbles in my hair, in my hair.
There are bubbles in the air,
There are bubbles in my hair.
There are bubbles everywhere, everywhere!
 

I’M GOING TO BLOW A BUBBLE

I’m going to blow a bubble.
Watch me while I blow.
See it’s getting bigger
Watch it grow and grow.
Do you think it’s big enough?
Maybe I should stop.
For if I give another blow
My bubble may POP!

(Have children cup hands around their mouths, then open them wider as they blow. Then clap their hands together at the end to pop the bubble.)


ALL AROUND THE SCHOOL YARD

Tune: “Pop! Goes the Weasel”

All around the school yard (or backyard, or school room).
The children chased the bubbles.
The children laughed and had such fun.
Pop! Goes the bubbles.
Pop goes the Bubble
Sung to "Pop! Goes the Weasel"
