This is a great activity using just a few materials you will find at home.
Time: 10 minutes to prepare.
Age: 5 to 10s
Round plastic containers
Pour a drop of detergent into containers.
Add food colouring (you will need to add a good amount for the colours to be bright).
Pour water to fill roughly a quarter of the container.
Put straw into container and have your child blow bubbles until they rise to the top. (keep reminding younger children to blow as though they are blowing out candles, sometimes they might tend to suck)
Place paper over the top of the bubbles to make a print.
