Blowing Bubbles with straws


This idea came from Play Create Explore,  I was blown away by how much Liam loved it he played for quite awhile and then revisited it 3 or 4 times during the day. The best part was it is so easy to setup and much to my surprise there was very little mess and no spills. He was so intent on blowing and popping the bubbles that splashing wasn't even on his radar even though water play at our house normally ends up with everything soaked!

You will need
Shallow Container/Bowl
Water
Dish Detergent
Straws
Food Colouring (optional)

Setup 
Put the dish detergent and water into a bowl, I also added a few drops of food colouring to the water just for fun (the food colouring does not colour the bubbles).
I placed a towel on the table under the bowl just in case ..... then it was time to blow lots of bubbles

More bubble blowing

Blowing the bubbles away so he could start again

Honestly this was so much fun that the whole family had a go!

No he didn't accidentally drink any of it. I set everything up and told him he could blow bubbles, this was enough intstruction for Liam (almost 5 yrs old) to know to only blow. If you were concerned I would remind the child to only blow through the straw as it will taste yucky if they suck/drink the liquid.
