good clean fun

The lizard and ladybug just found Noodle and Doodle 
(on the Sprout channel).  
We don't actually get the channel from our local cable provider. 
We only get a few of the episodes 'on demand'...but the kids love it.  

Each show there is a craft.  
Their favorite craft has been the 'super duper bubble blower'.  
So that's what I made this past weekend.  


Here's what you'll need.  
Bowl (for bubble solution)
*Bubble Solution*
1/2 cup dish soap
4 cups water
2 tablespoons glycerine
Gather your straws and tape them together.  
Mix your bubble solution.  
You can figure out the rest :)

The original craft idea was to add paint to the bubble solution. 
Then blow the bubbles onto paper...making bubble art.  
It's a great idea (and we'll probably do that) but they just wanted bubbles.

I was able to find the liquid glycerine at Wal-Mart by the pharmacy.  
It was ~$3 for a 4oz bottle.  
Great deal considering you use so little of it and it makes great bubbles.

Yesterday, I bought all of my kid friendly bubble 'swords' 
for the Pirates & Polka Dots party. 

I plan on having a 'bubble refill' station 
(thanks to Kim at Party Frosting for directing me to this idea from Come Together Kids)

All that glycerine will come in handy!!

Love the refill idea. I had thought about making a bubble station for my daughters upcoming bday, but I have not been able to find cute bottles with a wide enough opening for a homemade wand.
