The Foamerator!

I mentioned in this post that the Rev and I made this fun bubble game when we played babysitters at the beach last week. If I was a good blogger, I would have personal pictures, but do you have any idea how hard it is to give bubble blowing instructions and take pictuires at the same time? You'll just have to look at the stock photo and take my word for it--this craft is good, old, outdoor, messy fun and you probably have everything that it requires laying around. Try it this weekend!

Here's what you'll need:

Plastic water bottle
Used towel or washcloth
Rubber band
Shallow bowl
Dish soap

Here's what you do:

Cut the bottom off a plastic water bottle.

Cover the open end with a circular piece of towel that's a few inches wider than the bottle. Secure the towel with a rubber band.

Dampen the towel with water, then dip it into a shallow bowl of dish soap. Blow gently through the mouth of the bottle to create snakes of tiny bubbles.

Parents: supervise younger children to make sure they do not suck in any soap bubbles.

What a fun alternative to regular bubbles. I can't wait to try this with my 5 year old!
