Then pour your mixture into a medium sized container until it is a little less that 3/4 full.
Step 3: Create the Bubbles
Place your straw into your bubble mix and blow some bubbles until they are about 1-2 inches above your container.
After you have some nice bubbles, stir them up with your straw untill they create a frothy mix.
Step 4: Add the Coloring
Drop your food coloring onto the bubbles to add color.
Drop a total of 8 drops of food coloring into the bubbles then mix them well.
You can add more food coloring to the bubbles if you need to.
Step 5: Create Your Desighn

Step 6: Final Steps
Blow off the extra bubbles, by just lightly blowing on them with your mouth towards the sink and let dry!
After placing the bubbles on your paper it may be a bit wrinkly so you can iron it to make it more flat and to dry it out faster
You can use any color of food coloring or multiple colors of food coloring on one page to create tons of cool art!
