I came across a very neat idea on Pinterest yesterday. We had all the "ingredients" so I decided to have some fun with Caleb while Lorelei napped away.
We started with a shallow dish, finger paint, bubble solution and a straw (you can also use dish detergent as we found out later).
We also ended up needing a few rags!
We poured the bubble solution in, squirted some blue paint in as well and mixed with our straw.
Then the fun begins!!! Stick the straw in and blow away...
Then have fun popping all the big bubbles.
Lots of fun.
Make sure everything gets reallllllly messy, otherwise you're probably not having enough fun.
Then, after you run out of bubble solution, grab a bigger dish and fill with lots of dish detergent...you don't even need bubble solution!
Caleb left with really clean hands...and I didn't care how big of a mess he made because it was just water and soap.
Best and easiest activity/science experiment ever.
Kept him busy for a good 20 minutes, and for a 3 year old, that's a lonnnng time!
