I posted recently about my love of soap bubbles, and since we went to the bubble exhibition a few years ago I have been thinking in trying to make really big ones.
When I was looking around in pinterest for things to do in the summer, I found a post teaching how to make big bubbles. It is really simple, you probably have everything you need at home.
Did it work? Well check it out:
The original tutorial asked for 4 drinking straws, but I ended up using two kebab sticks as handlers instead of a second pair of straws.
I told the the boys to blow or to wave the contraption but they discovered that the best way to make big bubbles was to slowly walk backwards. Genius!
I found this in a list of "boy-approved craft and activities", and interesting enough, I had 3 boys and 4 girls at home (only two my own, you understand) and while the girls played a little, it was the boys that really enjoyed making giant bubbles.
