During the summer when it is really hot, I have to come up with something enticing to get the kids outside. The car wash has always been an instant hit. It is pretty hard to keep them away from buckets of water overflowing with soap.
After they are bored of washing the cars, the atmosphere turns bubble hysteria. I have to patrol the dish soap or else they will use the whole bottle. Practically anything with a hole can be used to blow bubbles with. Drinking straws, string, slotted spoons, even strawberry baskets. See what will make a bubble and what does not. Will a square hole make a square bubble? Bubbles Anyone?
Homemade Touchable Bubble Solution: 2 cups bubble solution, 1 1/2 cups of water, 4 tablespoons dish washing liquid, 4 tablespoons light corn syrup.
