We blew bubbles on the lawn all morning! Did you miss it? Check out some bubble fun you can have at home!

What do you get with two wading pools, two water tables, four jugs of dish soap, a lot of water, a bunch of assorted household items and a whole crowd of kids? Bubble Day! We made our own simple bubble solution this morning and put it out in a number of different containers along with easy-to-make bubble blowing tools and let the kids get their hands nice and soapy. If you get soapy enough you don't even need bubble blowers - just cup your hands and blow through! We made big bubbles, little bubbles and piles of suds before washing off for the day.

If you couldn't make it, or if you did and want to try having your own bubble day at home, it's easy to do! Take a look here for some bubble solution ideas (we went super simple and just used one cup of Dawn Ultra for each gallon of water and it worked pretty well). Then, once you have your bubble solution made - it works best if it sits for a little bit - make some bubble blowing tools! Chenille stems (pipecleaners) make great bubble wands. Some cotton string tied in a loop with drinking staws strung on it for handles makes for great larger bubbles. Anything with a hole can make a bubble. Coat hangers? Sure! Funnels? Definitely! Hula hoops? You bet! It's a great way to cool off on a hot summer day.
