Nothing says summer quite like…BUBBLES! So, pull out the kiddie pool and strap on the water wings. It’s time for a wet romp in the backyard, with the highlight being giant homemade bubbles! Below is our favorite bubble recipe, along with three fitting books about bubbles (to make it all educational, of course!).
First, here’s how to make some rockin’ homemade bubble stuff:
Homemade Bubble Stuff
1 cup water
4 Tablespoons dishwashing liquid
2 Tablespoons light karo syrup (or 2 Tablespoons glycerin)
Mix all of the ingredients together. That’s it!
For more bubble recipes, see bubbleblowers.com.
Now, it’s time to find a bubble wand. Be creative with household items! A few to try:
a metal coat hanger bent into a circle (watch for sharp ends)
a silicone steaming basket
mason jar lid rings
a potato ricer
the plastic rings that come around a 6-pack of soda
And, here are some of our favorite books about bubbles, to drive home those great text-to-life connections:

There you have it: everything you need for a fun-filled day of summer fun, with just enough learning thrown in to make you happy (and solidify your title as World’s Greatest Mom).
