Flower-Power Pendants

Flower Pendants (7)

Kids will love this novel bubble-based painting method. The resulting pendant necklaces are perfect for class Valentines!

To create the bubble paint, fill a short cup with 3 tablespoons dish soap, 1 tablespoon water, and 2 tablespoons paint. In order to make our cups short enough, I snipped the top half from regular 8-ounce paper cups.

Use a straw to blow into the mixture and you’ll create colored bubbles that rise to the surface. Press a piece of thick white paper firmly over the top. Repeat with more bubbles and more pressing until you’ve covered the sheet of paper, then let dry.

Travis loved that the bubbles toppled over the edge of our cup each time; needless to say, this is a bit of a messy project! We repeated with three different paint colors.

Once dry, cut the pages into flower shapes, repeating for the desired amount of Valentines.

Punch a hole in each flower and thread with cord (available at craft stores), to complete each necklace.

On the back, we wrote the sweet message, “You’re a great bud!”
