Bubble Art with Kids

I was thrilled a couple weeks back when Toni from Design Dazzle asked me to share a fun summer activity with kids. This is what we came up with...

If you're a thrifter like me, then you're always on the lookout for a good frame. I happened to snag this one up for $3 at my thrift store.

I took the picture out and spray painted both the canvas and the frame white.

Next, I added a little food coloring to a few bubble containers (which I found at Wal-mart for about $2).

Finally, I let Ross go wild!

This is what we created...

I'm pretty sure I know where this one's going too...
