If you are looking for something fun to do with your kids this summer try this out! We took a water bottle and cut the bottom off of it. Then you put a washcloth or rag over the bottom and secure it with a rubber band. Then you get some liquid dish soap and put it in a container, get the washcloth wet with water and dip the washcloth into the dish soap. Then take the lid off of the water bottle and blow! It is really cool! Here are some pictures of our first attempt. Sadie loved it...we will definitely be doing it again!

This is just before we were going back inside...Silly girl!

I loved this because no matter how old you can make the bubbles come out! It's not as hard as those little stick things that come in the bubble containers. Just make sure they only blow out...Sadie sucked in a couple times and got some bubbles in her mouth.

They make really looooooooong bubbles.

See that white blob in the middle of the picture? That is a blob of bubbles that detached itself from the end of the water bottle and flew away down the street. Sadie started crying until I told her to just make some more. :)

This was a really fun activity. I saw it in Family Fun magazine a few months ago. Perfect for kids!

cute! i've heard it done with an old sock too, then you may not even need a rubber band. :)

bubbles are great.
