One of my son’s homework assignments is to play with shaving cream. How cool is that? I am just to cheap to buy it. Then my husband told me how they were at his sister’s house and how they had a lot of fun with a simple activity she gave them. All she did was scoop up the top bubbles off her dish water and let the kids play (help clean) her counters. Since they had so much fun with that, I decided to make some super bubbles and see how they like them. Although they were not exactly perfect for writing numbers and letters in, they did have a lot of fun and it kept them entertained and seated for at least 10 minutes!
What You Need:
- Water ( We used only 1/4 cup water)
- Dish soap (we used 1-2 Tablespoons)
- Mixer (with beaters)
- Table or large lid/pan to keep the bubbles on
Step 1: Add water and soap to mixing bowl and put on high speed for 1-2 minutes. The longer/faster you mix the denser the bubbles. Play with the different amounts of soap and water you add in to create different textures. Ours wasn’t quite soapy enough to really to make bubble blowers with our hands, but came off really easy.
Step 2: Plop it on the table or a large surface and let them go to town. We used some 9×13 glass pan lids that helped keep things contained with their small edges.
Step 3: Let them have fun. There are so many ways…practice letter or number writing, play with the texture, clean off the table, blow bubbles by cupping their hands, etc. ** Be careful to warn them not to clap their hands in front of their face, so they do not get soap in their eyes.**
