|Wow! Daddy made a whopper!
Bubbles are really beautiful. A delicate floating shape covered in a swirl of rainbow colours which fly where the breeze takes them and vanish in an instant. No wonder kids are excited by them. Being able to create such a marvel, watch it fly and then make it disappear again with a tap of your finger is like being a little magician.
|What can you see in your bubble?
Bubbles invite other questions too- which is the biggest/smallest bubble you can see? How many can you blow in one go? What can you see reflected on your bubble? What colours are on your bubble? Can you pop them all before they touch the ground? How high will they float before they pop? Can you catch one without it popping? What if you have wet hands?

When they do learn to blow a big one themselves the sense of achievement is great!
Aaah, bubbles. The simple things in life...!
Just saw a link to this great vid showing how to make mega bubbles, will definitely be spending plenty of time doing this when the weather warms up!
