Blowing bubbles

How to play with bubbles!

Bubble games to play

Firstly put on some bubble music!

Playing music while making bubbles really will improve everyones mood and you may just find yourself dancing, singing and making bubbles. Gosh its so much fun! Here is my feel good bubble playlist. There is some catchy bubble theme songs here.

1. Simply make giant bubbles. There is a few ways you can use your bubble wand to make bubbles. If it is a windy day just let the wind take the bubbles. However if it isn’t windy you can move your body to create wind thus forming your own bubbles or hold the freshly dipped wand near to your mouth and blow. Blow close up and see lots of small bubbles then move slightly backwards and see how this makes bigger bubbles. How to us tri-string bubble wands.

2. Blow bubbles using your hands.

Fully immerse a hand into the solution, make an okay sign with your thumb and forefinger, pull your hand out and blow the soap bubble film that appears in the loop made by your thumb and forefinger. How to blow bubbles with your hands.

3. Catch big bubbles. You can catch big bubbles with wet hands! So immerse your hands in the bubble mixture and catch and play with some mega bubbles.

4. Bouncing bubbles.

Some materials like fleece and wool gloves will bounce bubbles. It takes a bit of a gentle hand but with some practice and determination you can become pro at bouncing bubbles.

5. Play dodgem bubbles. One person/adult makes bubbles and the others have to dodge the bubbles, a fun bubbly twist on the classic ball game. This works best when there is some wind to carry the bubbles.  

6. Go on a bubble prop scavenger hunt. What can you find around your home that you can make bubbles with? Everyone go and find 3 things. Take it in turns trying to make bubbles out of the props you found. When I played this I found a kids croc shoe, a pasta strainer and a kids expandable ball. The pasta strainer didn’t work very well but I had much of fun with the croc and the expandable ball.

10. Blow bubbles with string.

11. Watch bubbles change colour. Bubbles are full of colour waves, make a bubble and notice all the different colours swirling around. Bubbles reflect different colours depending on the thickness of the bubble wall. Now make a bubble and let it land on a wet surface so the bubble sits still and doesn’t pop. Now watch that bubble for a while, you will see the bubble change different colours (as the bubble wall get thinner/dries out). Changing from blue, green, yellow, until it will eventually looks colourless then inevitably popping.

Try making bubbles in the rain, when not windy, when windy, on a frosty morning, just after rain when the air and ground is wet (look at all the bubbles that land on the floor!) and even in the snow and freezing temperatures.

16. Bubble Painting.

There is 2 ways I like to paint with bubbles. 1) Blowing bubbles in a bowl. In a bowl mix 50/50 paint and bubble solution. Using a straw blow the mixture to create bubbles just above the bowl edge but not over spilling. Then press your paper onto the bubble mound. Then reveal. 2) Using a bubble foamer. In your pot mix 50/50 paint and bubble solution. Dip your foamer into the mixture and them blow out the foam onto the paper. Allow to dry. Both methods equally as fun. If you are not getting a great pigment then add more paint to your mix.

17. Learn bubble science for kids.

18. Watch a bubble documentary.

19. Blow bubbles onto a table top.

You will need to make your table top wet so your bubbles don’t pop straight away. You may want to use a plastic kids table or use a waterproof table cover. Use straws/tubes and bubble solution to blow bubbles directly onto the table. You can link bubbles up to for a bubble snake. What else can you create? Perhaps a flower.

20. Catch bubbles on waterproof bubble lights. This is a very simple yet effective way of turning bubble making into a sensory sensation. Catch the bubble on top of the light or blow the bubble directly onto the light. Then have fun popping the bubbles with your finger or breath. Make your own bubble light.
