Step 1: 

First, we need to make our bubble blower.  Place your empty water bottle on your cutting board.  Using your X-Acto knife, carefully cut around the bottle just below where the bottle begins to have straight sides.

Step 2: 

Cut a piece of your string bag large enough to cover the open end of your newly cut bottle.

Step 3: 

Lay your bottle on top of the string bag.

Step 4: 

Use a rubber band to attach the string bag to the bottle.  You now have a homemade bubble blower.

Step 5: 

Next we will make the paint.  Pour some bubble liquid into a shallow bowl.  Add food coloring of your choice.  Don't be shy with the food coloring.  The more you add the more vibrant your colors will be.

Step 6: 

Stir the liquid to incorporate the color.

Step 7: 

Make as many colors as you like.  It is best if you have a blower for each color.  Set out your bowls of color and your paper.

Step 8: 

One by one begin blowing colored bubbles onto the paper.

Step 9: 

Experiment with the colors, with the distance from the paper, with the size of the bubbles - do whatever you like to create your own unique work of art.
