ROMKids Show: The One From Winnie The Pooh

Tune in every Tuesday at 2 pm on Instagram Live as ROM Kids Coordinator and Camp Director Kiron Mukherjee combines his passion for children’s education with storytelling to bring to life science, history and art for you and your loved ones in the comfort of your own home. Kiron will share activities, easy at-home crafts, behind the scenes anecdotes and fun facts—all connected to the ROM collections. 

This time on the ROMKids Show we visit the Hundred Acre Wood in our brand new Winnie-the-Pooh exhibit! We’ll explore the origins of this famous cast of characters and the Canadian connections. Then using food colouring, soap, and paper, we’ll recreate a classic scene with the bubble art technique! 


  • 3 teaspoons of dish soap
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • blue food colouring
  • small container
  • straw
  • 1 piece of card stock, or thick paper
  • 1 yellow piece of paper
  • scissors
  • tape or glue
  • pencil/black marker
Step 1 and 2.

1. To make your bubble ink, mix your water, dish soap, and food colouring together into a small container. 

2. Dip your straw into your bubble ink to get the end covered in ink. Don’t drink it though! Then blow gently through your straw over your paper. Bubbles should pop as they hit the paper.

Step 3.


3. With your yellow paper, draw out Winnie-the-Pooh. Take your time! It’s ok to use a reference, and you can also create your own entirely new character!

Step 4.

4. Under one of the bubbles you particularly like, tape or glue your character down. Then draw a black circle around the bubble and a line straight down to your character’s hand. Now they are floating away on a balloon! Add in a few bees to really do the scene justice!
