Looking at the weather lately I do not know what to think. I feel so bad for my friends who are freezing their toesies off and, yet, I am loving the “way to early to be this warm” weather here in sunny AZ. I have lived my fair share of years cooped up inside during the winter, so I totally feel the pain of being cooped up. So in honor of everyone warm or freezing, we are sharing a fun and inexpensive activity that everyone should love indoors or out!
What You Need:
- 2 straws – I always snag a couple extra when we go out to eat just for these occasions!
- Small measuring cup (medicine size is perfect)
- Stir-crazy children
Step 1: Cut two straws in half.
Step 2: Tape all 4 straws together to make a Bubble Pipe (see below). We found it helpful to tape in the middle, but also 1/2 inch from the edge the bubble mixture will be touching.
Step 3: Fill your measuring cup half way with bubble liquid. See the cup below? Perfect, right?!?!
TIP: We discovered the small measuring cups were perfect for this kind of bubble play! They are a good fit for the kiddos hand/fingers, fit the straws perfectly and, most importantly, if they happen to “accidentally” spill it, you did not loose the whole bottle!
Step 4: Go outside and let them blow away!!! OR…
…Go to the bathtub and let them blow their little bubble hearts out! The bathtub is a great place to contain the bubble mess and they still can go crazy!
In case you are wondering, you can fit 3 kiddos comfortably in the tub area. Ha! But the wee one was ruling the zone!
They had a lot of fun and it was a super easy clean up!
