Mix soap into water and a thin film forms on the surface that can trap air, creating bubbles. Add food coloring, and your kids can transfer their vibrant spheres to paper!

1. Fill a shallow dish about halfway with water and add a squirt of dish soap.

2. Mix in a bottle of food coloring.

3. Blow into the mixture with a straw, creating a full head of bubbles.

4. Gently touch a sheet of paper to the bubbles, letting them pop on the paper. Repeat with other colors!
