My kids love bubbles! And the bigger the better!! To be honest when we get this stuff out, even the adults can't resist...it's a lot of fun. So my next suggestion for summer fun with the kiddos is to have a bubble day! We do this a lot and have some suggestions. We like to buy the biggest bottle of bubble liquid at Wal-Mart and then pour out into a round pizza pan. Then use either Joy Dish Washing liquid or Johnson's No Tears Shampoo to squirt extra soap into the store bought bubble liquid for extra big bubbling. Because the bubbles get so big and when they pop if the kids are little and it gets in their eyes the Joy might sting a little. I think the Joy works best for the bubble factor, but the Johnson's also works good and no sting. We like to use butterfly nets that we have cut out most of the net, leaving only the part attached to the ring (so the bubble liquid has something to stick to) and then dip the ring into the liquid, pulling it out slowly. You can also make your own buy using wire hangers and or sticks, making a ring and a long handle, then crochet around the ring making something for the liquid to stick to. (If you have older kids it's a perfect way to teach a simple crochet stitch!) We have the best luck with huge bubbles when there's a slight breeze to help elongate the bubbles. My 6 year old is the master! She can make the longest bubbles I've ever seen!
Here are some pics of our bubble fun!

Keep in mind these are huge bubbles using a lot of bubble liquid so if they pop them over head they will need a bath after or they will feel very slippery and soapy! Or maybe playing in the sprinklers or kiddy pool after would do the trick!! Or just hose them off, LOL!
This is by far, one of my kids favorite summer activities, we hope you like it too!
