Fun with Bubbles



My kids (like many) love blowing bubbles.  A DIY bubble activity is not only a great way to entertain your kids, but it’s also very cost friendly to you.  Here is what you’ll need to get started:




Jello-O mix

Food coloring


Wire Clothes Hanger

Pipe cleaner


You make the bubble solution while you’re kids make their wands out of stuff you already laying around the house!

Cut the bottom of the water bottle out to make an easy to use bubble blower.  Just dip the cut edge in the solution, and blow through the mouth piece.  This is best for young children. You  can even decorate the bottle with paper or felt to really personalize their bubble blowing experience.  Bend the clothes hanger into all sorts of fun shapes that are great for big bubbles!  Bend a pip cleaner into the shape of a plastic bubble blower and go for it!  My daughters and I formed circles with our pipe cleaners and attached them in a long chain.  Then J held one end and E held the other, and they ran – watching bubbles wisp out from their pipe-cleaner chain.  Add food coloring for fun color bubbles – but careful as this step can make things more messy, and cause stains.


As far as the solution:

Take a quarter cup dish-detergent, a quarter cup jello mix, and 2 1/4 cups warm water.  Stir briefly and let sit.


This is such a fun activity, and gets the kids up and moving – great exercise just before the winter months hit.
