What kid doesn’t love bubbles & being creative? This Kid Concoctions Magic Bubble Art Kit is a combination of both! My son was so excited to try it. It comes with all the things necessary to make all the cute things in the photos on the box (above).
My son could have blown bubbles until next year…lol! He couldn’t get enough of it! I would definitely suggest using a garbage bag cut into a tablecloth to protect your work surface. We used newspaper at 1st and ended up with a soaking wet mess.
If I had one tiny suggestion/con, the kit comes with colored paper cups which get soaked through instantly. I wish it would have come with plastic cups instead. No biggie, we just transferred are colored bubble water to some plastic cups I already had on hand.
After awhile, I mixed colors together to get purple, orange, & brown. The kit comes with heavy paper & a sticker sheet that you press on top of the blown bubbles. Most of the heavy paper had pre-cut designs in them to make the fun crafts you see on the box (1st photo). My little guy loved punching them out when they were dry!
The photo above is with the paper they gave us, but there was also plenty of the colored bubble water leftover for us to make more bubble art onto our own paper- and even then my little guy didn’t want to stop blowing bubbles! I guess it’s safe to say that he really loved this art kit! The photo below is tie dyed paper towel art we made with the colored bubble water we had left over. You can either dip corners of a folded paper towel into the the colored water or just add drops of the colored water to the paper towel with a paintbrush.
My son’s favorite thing that we made was the Popsicle stick puppets and the flowers. Even though the kit is for ages 6+, my little guy (4 years old) was able to follow the very easy instructions to do most of it with little help from me.
So sweet, he put on his very 1st puppet show for me! He thought it was so funny and had a blast pretending to be the characters.
On the box, the projects are stand alone crafts, but to make it more age appropriate for my son, I had him glue his to a piece of construction paper. With all the circle & heart stickers (yellow photo) he made a collage of his family and friends. My personal favorite is the hot air balloon. This would have been cute hanging up as a stand alone craft, but he wanted to glue it to paper instead. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the little boy inside the hot air balloon has a cute sticker of his face & a hat.
I love the crown it came with also. It was perfect size for his favorite stuffed animal that he plays with everyday!
His baby sister is turning 1 this month (sniff, sniff) so I had him use the banner and balloons to make her a birthday picture. I used the part where the crown had been punched out from as a stencil. To do this, just tape it down to the paper with masking tape- it easily pulls off afterwards. You could either sponge paint it or just use a paintbrush.
Thank you Growing Tree Toys for the opportunity to review this great art kit!
