Blowing Bubbles

What to do:

  1. Children can experiment with different types of bubble blowers—straws, strainers, anything with perforations or holes in it.
  2. It sometimes takes younger children a while to learn how to blow out of a straw rather than suck in.
  3. Compare the results of blowing bubbles on a windy day and a calm day.

Bubble blowing solution recipe:

  • 1/2 cup regular dish washing liquid (not the type used in dishwashers)
  • 4 or 5 cups water
  • Cooking oil

    4. Add the water to the dish washing liquid. Add a touch of cooking oil to make the bubbles strong, and you have bubble solution.
