Bubble Worms

“I’m bored” has been an often used phrase around here. I’m busy, Chris is busy and the kids are going nuts. I found this “Super Foam-erator” idea from this post and was amazed how fast and easy it was!

The kids loved it and the best part was that all of my kids could do this easily. Ms O loved making the long worms and Eddie was the champion blower.

Directions can be found here, but really all you need is a plastic bottle with the bottom cut off, a rubber band, some terry cloth, and some sort of bubbly soap poured into a lid. It’s stuff everyone has around the house already- love it!

Simply cut off the bottom half of the plastic bottle and attach a small piece of terry cloth with the rubber band. (The thiner the cloth the better since the kids have to blow through it.) Get the cloth wet, dip it into the soap and blow. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and results in alot of fun. I do have to warn you to remind the kids to breathe in through their nose and out their mouth. My boys keep sucking the bubbles up into their mouths through the bottle because they were breathing out and in with through their mouths. Funny, but not really…

Anyhoo, try it out today. It’s hot, the pool’s up and there’s plenty of sewing to be done. Keep them busy and happy!
