- small plastic cup
- drinking straw (cut in half to make smaller)
- hole punch
- rubber band
- thin, disposable dish cloth, like Handi-Wipes, cut into 5-inch (or so) squares
- bubbles: pour thin layer onto a dish or in a wide bowl
about a quarter inch below the rim, punch a hole
lay cloth over top and use rubber band to attach
stick straw through hole, about a half inch in
turn cup upside down and dip cloth into bubbles
blow into straw (make sure your child is able to blow first. I recommend practicing blowing first, to insure the child doesn't inhale when she puts her mouth on the straw.)
The kids will be so excited that they are making bubbles! It's fun to see how high their bubbles can go, and just as fun to blow the bubbles off the top. Enjoy!
