summary:

Make your own bubble fun at home..

Blowing bubbles is a fun activity to do on a warm spring day. Combine 2 tablespoons of liquid dish detergent and 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl, and stir gently. If you don’t have plastic bubble blowers handy, drop a few rubber bands into the bowl of bubble liquid. Using fingertips, pick a rubber band out of the mix and blow through the soapy film, or wave the rubber band through the air to make a stream of bubbles. Older children can do this alone, while younger children can help you blow, and then chase the bubbles to pop them. Babies will love watching the bubbles float away, and will enjoy the antics of the older kids.
