The Art of Bubbles

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.

  • hhaahaha… that’s so funny …. i like to wash the car my mom on the other hand not so much so i try 2 help her wash the car when i can,,, lol… : – )

  • That is kind of you. I am sure she appreciates the help. I should have specified they were washing their cars (the Fred Flinstone looking ones) and bikes in the back yard. It is nuts but oh so fun.
