Sunday Snapshot -- You MUST Try This!

If you do only ONE thing this Summer, you MUST do this!!





Everything we needed to make the bubble wands came from the hardware store -- eye hooks, wooden dowels, butcher's twine, and a washer. That's it!!


A game of bubble tag just never gets old!


Special thanks to Childhood Magic for the inspiration behind today's Sunday Snapshot!

I don't know who had more fun....... us, or the kids??





Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!!

I had a giant bubble wand when I was a kid. I had no idea that you could make one. What fun! Thanks for the information. I'll have to try it!

Maria said...

Did you use store bought bubbles or make your own? If you made them, will you post the recipe?
Thanks!!

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

@ Marie -- We used homemade bubble solution. To make your own mega bubble solution, you will need: 6 cups distilled water, 2 cups Joy dishwashing detergent, 5-6 drops of glycerin. Very simple and they work very well!! Have FUN!! :-)

@ Crafty Auntie Creates -- We've made Spring Shaped Bubble Wands before too! --> Instructions to Make Your Own Here.

we went to a mad science party where they did this... did you know that if you add 3 tablespoons of salt to the bubble mic it makes bigger bubbles? too cool!!!

We will be trying this for sure! I am curious to know if you made your won bubble mixture or if you used a store bought one? If you made it yourself, do you mind sharing your recipe? I have not been able to find a great homemade recipe on line!

Thanks,
Tricia

Tricia Orchard said...

ME again. I just came across the link to a bubble recipe on the Childhood Magic website. I will try that recipe.

Thanks,
Tricia

Great timing on this post today. Also checked out the posting on Childhood Magic.
Spent our morning making bubble sticks and using them. To see our results you can watch our posting at ~http://countryfun.edublogs.org/2010/07/19/summer-science/

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

@ Pip -- Thank you so much!! That's so sweet of you and it totally made my day! xoxo :-)

@ Tricia Orchard -- We made our own bubble solution, as we have many times before. I think it works a lot better than store bought. Just some water, Joy detergent, and a few drops of glycerin. Have fun!!

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

@ A Crafter and Artist -- Wow!! Looks like you guys had a blast too! That makes me VERY happy! :-)

Stephanie Lynn @Under the Table and Dreaming said...

Just Breathe said...

Oh my, what large bubbles!

Petula said...

That does look like awesome fun. I was all in 'til I read you said glycerin. I'm assuming I can find that at Michael's??? Gosh, it sucks being lazy. Can I send my kids to visit you for a few weeks. You can have a frugal summer camp. Five to 10 kids two weeks at a time. :-D We'll be your first to test out the camp for you.
