Step 1:
In the small container (in some of our examples, we used the 2 oz plastic containers, in one example, we used a paper cup), squirt some dish soap, add a small amount of water, and lastly, squirt in some fluorescent paint, color of your choice. Mix together.

Step 2: Option 1
Set the container on top of your paper. Dip the straw into the mixture and blow to create bubbles.

You can continue to create bubbles and watch them fall onto your paper, moving your container around to help cover your paper. You can repeat with different colors.

Step 2: Option 2
In this photo, a hole was created at the bottom of the paper cup to insert the straw. You don’t have to do this exactly. You can still insert the straw in the top and blow, creating bubbles.

Once the bubbles have started coming out the top, stop blowing and tap the paper down on top of the cup, essentially popping the bubbles with your paper and transferring the paint to paper

Step 3:
Continue until you are happy with the coverage of the paper. Now, you can either let the paper sit to dry or you can pop the bubbles with another paper, paper towel, or baby wipe.
