Spring Family Activities

Bubbles. Who doesn’t love bubbles. And it is even more fun when you make your own and use a big wand.

Here’s how:

Supplies needed:

1 big bucket

1 cup dish soap

1 Tbsp glycerine or corn syrup

4 cups water

2 drinking straws

Yarn or string 6-8x longer than 1 straw

Food coloring for colorful bubbles


Place dish soap, glycerine and water in the bucket.

Thread yarn through the straws and tie a knot.

Holding on straw in each hand dip it in the bucket

Hold hands high as you walk, walking backwards generates bigger bubbles

Other options for wands

Cookie cutters

Wiffle ball

Fly swatter
