book some fun–bubbles!

Let’s book some fun with bubbles!

First, read the book Casey in the Bath by Cynthia DeFelice (Lane Library info here), and find out just how fun bath time can be.   If you can purchase some green bubble bath, be sure to add some of that to the bath water.  Just watch out for those bubble people!

After you have read the book, get ready to make your own bubbles.  Start with one quart of water in a shallow box or tub.  Stir in 1/2 cup of sugar and let it dissolve.  Then stir in 1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid.  You could even add food coloring to make green bubbles!  Use a slotted serving spoon as the bubble wand–dip the spoon into the bubble mixture and wave it in the air.  Other items that you could use as bubble wands include floral wire or pipe cleaners twisted into interesting shapes, a butter or yogurt lid with the center cut out of the circle, large cookie cutters, even a metal can with the ends cut off (make sure there are no sharp edges).

Have fun reading about and making bubbles!
