I've never met a kid that doesn't like bubbles. Even adults love bubbles (well I do) It's such a fun activity, will keep the kids entertained and away from video games and tv. The only way to make this activity better is to DIY.
You can save a lot of money making your own bubble soap and tools to blow bubbles.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
1 1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup dish soap
1/4 cup corn syrup
For the bubble blower
An empty water bottle
An old sock
A rubber band
Step 2: Make the Bubble Liquid
Put the water in a bowl, add the dish soap and the corn syrup. Stir slowly until the soap and syrup dissolve. Do not mix fast or it will make foam.
Step 3: For the Bubble Blower
Cut the bottle in half. We'll only use the part with the bottle neck
Cut the tip of the sock
Put the sock covering the biggest circle
Wrap the rubber band around the sigo to secure in place.
Step 4: How to Use It
Just put the bubble soap in a bowl that's wider than the bottle.
Dip the sock and through the bottle neck blow, you'll see the bubbles will start forming, keep blowing until you have a long row of bubbles.
