We have had a busy week! Between playing outside and having fires, playing with sparklers and hanging out with daddy, we needed something calm to do today. There wasn't much, but my kids love bubbles! Big Kid is having a hard time figuring out what he can do with them. I read somewhere (sorry, I don't remember where but probably Pintrest) about sword fighting with bubbles. What boy wouldn't have fun with fighting bubbles? Well my boys LOVED it!!
Take two boys who love Star Wars, and a mom who doesn't like them fighting light sabers and hurting each other, put those together and you have to figure something out. I decided that the bubbles were the enemies (I don't do Star Wars so I don't know who the enemy is) and the boys went to town trying to destroy them! Not only do they use their imaginations, but they get in the physical exercise and mom doesn't have to do too much, a bonus!!
Little Miss wanted something to do with bubbles too. She is a mini Star Wars fan, but I thought of something different for her. She was bored with her typical bath time tonight. So what does this mommy do? Yep, I pull out the bubbles!! I had just as much as she did!! Blowing bubbles into a bathtub is so interesting. They bounce off the water! And when she was able to catch them, she was able to hold them.
Bubbles are so fun! They are wonderful for every age. What are some of the fun ways you use bubbles with your kids?
