We are winding down with our last few days of school. One of my FAVORITE days that we do during these last few days is BUBBLE DAY! It is so much fun!!! The kids LOVE it and it gives me a chance to take some REALLY cute pics of the kiddos:)
We start off the day reading these 2 REALLY fun books! Both of the books are about bubbles that take the shape of things.
Then we do this book page!! Click on the image below for your free copy:)
We also did bubble painting! This is so much fun!!(and just a tad messy:)-the kids LOVE it!! I got the idea from Musings of me!
Just get a small, shallow container and fill the bottom with tempera paint.
Then, put a layer of dawn on top of that. Then add a little water. Stir it up and stick a straw in it.
We practiced SEVERAL times how to blow through a straw rather than suck! And I didn’t have anyone drink any of this:) Here are some pics:
uhhhh….looks like someone got a little carried away!!!;)
Here are some of our finished products:
Last, but not least…an afternoon of bubble blowing!!!! To make your bubbles:
get a swimming pool and fill it with water.
AFTER it is filled with water, add about 1/2 bottle of dawn dish soap.
Also add about 1/4 bottle of corn syrup. This coats the bubbles and makes them stronger:)
Did you know you can cut a 2-litter bottle or water bottle in 1/2 and it makes for a PERFECT and free bubble blower?!? They make some of the biggest bubbles too:)
flyswatters are fun for making tiny bubbles and for using as bubble swatters too:)
The bigger the bubble wand, the better:)!!!!
And, of course everyone gets to take home their very own bottle of bubbles!;)
