Spring Activities for Kids





Spring is almost here and what better way to enjoy and appreciate those lovely spring days outdoors with your children than blowing bubbles!

Kids Craft Recipe for Homemade Bubbles:

3 cups water
1 cup dishwashing liquid or baby shampoo
1/3 cup light corn syrup
Mix all together in a large bowl. Instead of using dishwashing liquid I use Baby Shampoo. This won't sting children's eyes if the bubbles splatter in their eyes.

Homemade Bubble Wands

1.Classic coat hanger wand: Bend a wire hanger into a circle and handle. Wrap the circle with string. Dipping container: Upside down trash can lid.

2.Giant Soap Bubble Wand: Use 2 drinking straws, and a length of string, about 48 inches long. Thread the string through both of the straws, and knot the ends. Pour the bubble solution in a square or rectangular shaped pan. Lay the straws and string down in the soap solution. Gently lift up the straws, one in each hand. Spread the straws apart as you lift, and a giant bubble will form. Wave your arms across in the air and the bubble will be set free, to float up and away.

Shampoo Paint

6 Tbsp shampoo
water

Mix shampoo with a small amount of water and beat with an electric mixer. The shampoo should become like shaving cream. If it is too thick, add more water. If it is too runny, add more shampoo. This is great fun for kids to play with in the bath tub.
