This is going to be a favorite outside activity for my kids. My daughter had so much fun blowing the bubbles while my 16 month old son had fun playing with the bubbles.
Here is what you will need:
a plastic bottle
Food coloring (optional)
Tape or rubber band
How to make:
1. Cut bottom of plastic bottle
2. place sock over opening you cut
3. tape sock onto bottle
4. mix soap and water in a dish
5. dip sock in soapy water and blow
6. You can add some color by putting a couple drops right on the sock. (can get messy)
We had purchased that juice for kids (Hog Juice or something) that has a sports bottle top. It was shorter and the top has the cap that opens and closes and I think made it easier for a small mouth to blow but safer so they are less likely to swallow soapy water. My 16 month old did try but he is a bit to young to understand blowing out and did end up sucking in and resulted in a mouthful of soapy water. After that he had more fun playing in the bubbles.
When we did use some food coloring it showed up real nice for the first few blows but faded fast so you might have to continue to add drops to keep the colors coming.
Another fun idea is to have a contest to see who can make the longest snake! :)
**Parents you too will have fun... I did!! I also know my husband thinks these are super cool. He came home from work and said "bubble blowers cool, where did you get those?" Then he thought it was even cooler when he noticed they were homemade! :)
Also, this was another Pintrest find! A big shout out to Housing a Forest for posting this and pinning this for others to see! :)

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
