As much as I love taking pictures and blogging, I love to read other blogs more.
I am obsessed.
I read blogs on my half-hour lunch break!
I love it!
That being said, it should be no surprise that this next idea came from blogging. Child Central Station posted about their home-made plastic bottle bubble makers, and I had to give it a try.
The prep was easy. Drink soda and water. Save the bottles. After you rinse them out, cut them in half. I used a long bread knife, and it took me about two minutes to cut through them all. You need the top half of the bottles for the bubble makers, a piece of cloth, and a rubber band.
|Instead of cloth, I reused packaging netting from food and toy bags. I never throw anything away, I tell you!|
It's that simple!
|I filled the sensory table with a thin layer of bubble solution, bubble wands, and our bubble makers.|
|They experimented with the best way to blow...some found out pretty quickly that if you put your mouth on the opening, it doesn't taste very good!|
|It works much better if you blow through the hole from a small distance.|
|Rodney stuck with it for the entire duration of free play time.|
|I love the concentration I see going on here as he experiments with the best way to blow.|
