- Different sized bubble wands
Recipe for Fun!
- Classic Bubbles: The most popular game with bubbles is the traditional bubble blowing competition. Who can blow the largest bubble or whose bubble lasts the longest before popping?
- Bubble Tag: This is the classic backyard game of tag, but instead of tagging players with their hands, the player who is “it” must instead blow a bubble onto another player. Once a player is hit with a bubble, she/he is either out or has to take the place of being “it.”
- Bubble Race: Have the children stand in a race line. Choose a finishing point. Have each child blow a bubble and then try to blow that bubble over the finish line. The first child whose bubble goes over the line wins.
Modification: Vary the bubble blowing experience to make it educational by switching up what is used for bubble wands. Have kids compare the bubbles' shapes, sizes, and longevities by the size and shape of bubble wands used. Pour some of the bubble mixture into a larger bowl and improvise and use the plastic rings from soda bottle or cans six-packs.

Step 2: Add 2 teaspoons of sugar it to the soap/water mixture and stir.
Step 3: Go outside and have fun blowing bubbles. (If you don’t use the entire solution, it can be poured into a tightly sealed container and saved for another day!).
