It’s summertime! Here is an easy bubble making recipe so you can get outside and enjoy the sun:

Easy-Peasy Bubble Solution

*Warm Water (about 2 1/2 cups will make enough for one bubble sesh)

*Dish Soap (I use Puracy or Seventh Generation, but any soap will do, even baby shampoo can work as long as it can lather up. About 1/4 or less will do with the 2 1/2 cups of water)

*Pinch of Guar Gum

–Mix guar gum with warm water until it is completely dissolved.

–Gently add the dish soap. Try not to let it bubble up as you add it!

Fun bubble wand options:

*Plastic berry baskets

*Wire Hangers (bent into a circle)

*Slinkies

*Wooden Rings

*Pipe Cleaners (bent into a circle)

*Whatever you can find!

Making bubble solution is fun and easy way to add some math and science to your day, as well as fine and gross motor as your kiddos make and chase the bubbles around. Side note: blowing bubbles is a fantastic way to build the muscles in the mouth and lips needed for language development. Bonus!
