It’s summer and it is the first week that we had no preschool, no camp and really nothing going on. Time for projects! Luckily, months ago, I had started a board on Pinterest, called appropriately, “Keeping the kiddos busy”. So, my 4-year old and I started looking at some of the things I pinned and she picked making bubbles.
It worked great. Of course I wasn’t totally prepared to be making bubbles that day so we ended up using the end of a sand toy that had a small hole to blow bubbles with. This mixture gets very sudsy, especially, again, if you have a little brother who just wants to play in the soap mixture. We just made sure to dip down into the bucket past the suds and into the more liquidy part.
Definitely pretty cool. And easy too! All you need is a water bottle, scissors, fabric (sock or washcloth), and a rubber band. And of course your bubble mixture.
Luckily, there are loads of other homemade bubble wands on Pinterest. Click the link to go to my “Keeping the Kiddos Busy” board and follow along…I’ve pinned a few.
6 cups of water
1/2 cup dish soap
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon baking powder
Mix everything together in a large bowl or bucket and use your favorite bubble wand or toy!
