Here’s a really fun process art experience for your little kids! It’s bubble painting, but with a twist! Use things that you have around the house to create bubble prints and teach your preschoolers about circles in the process! It’s for sure a blast and you’re definitely going to want to try it out with your little kids!
I wanted to share one more activity that we did during our Bubbles, Boats & Floats preschool monthly theme. It’s bubble painting, but with a twist.
The little guy and I loved it and I’m sure that your little kids will too!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, process art is so important for encouraging creative thinking and problem solving skills in little kids and this particular invitation to create is one of the more versatile ones in that we could totally have used quite a few more things that were bubble-shaped.
And you know what? I considered it. I really did think about getting out the circular stamp and some bottle caps and whatever else I could find, but when it was all said and done, sometimes simple really is the way to go.
Maybe the next time, we’ll do a scavenger hunt before we do this type of process art and I’ll let the two little kids use whatever they find. I think that would be a lot of fun.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
Bubble Painting Invitation to Create Process Art Experience
What you’ll need
- Bubble Wrap
Here’s how to do it
- Set out the materials.
- What shapes do you see on the photo?
- How can you make circular bubble prints with the materials?
- How can you make small bubbles and then big bubbles?
- Did the child explore using tools and make intentional marks?
- Did he make choices during this art activity?
This was another one of those process art experiences that was so much fun for both us. Me because well, let’s face it, watching your little kids learning and enjoying themselves is one of the best things about being a homeschool mama.
And the little guy obviously because he likes to make a mess. That’s kind of his thing. He’s all for anything that involves paint. That’s no surprise, though, I’m sure.
One of the things about process art is that it can become a sensory experience of sorts. Little kids get the opportunity to explore different textures and techniques and even lots of materials and mediums.
We talked about what shape bubbles usually are and how we could make circular bubble prints with the materials.
We explored the concept of using the bubble wrap to make small bubbles and the cup to make big bubbles.
And obviously we learned a ton in the process, but that was to be expected. You know, considering all of the wonderful activities that we’ve done in the last few weeks!
