I don't know about your kiddos, but for mine pure joy is a tube of bubbles! There is something so free and charming about bubbles - I have never seen anyone not have to smile at them!
This week we thought we'd have a go at making our own bubble wands - we bent some pipecleaners around a couple of cookie cutters, then the kiddos threaded on beads to make them a little more sturdy and a lot more colourful!
I made some homemade bubble solution - using distilled water and washing up liquid (about 10:1 ratio) and a few drops of glycerin to make super strong bubbles, then we got blowing!
I think this will definitely be one of our go-to playtimes throughout the Summer - the kiddos had so much fun
