Homemade bubbles are always fun to make and play with! The simplest bubbles are made with liquid dish soap and water. A wand can be made from a pipe cleaner or stiff piece of wire. If you can, take the storytime kids outside and have fun blowing bubbles.


Take bubblewrap and have the kids take turns jumping on it and "popping the bubbles"

Sudsy Soap Balls

Craft Project Directions

To make this project you will need Ivory Snow flakes, water, food coloring (to make your soap ball all sorts of pretty colors!), and a bowl. Put three scoops of soap flakes in your bowl. Now select a color to make your soap balls and add that color food coloring and two tablespoons of water to the soap flakes. Stir constantly until the mixture gets thick enough so that you can form balls with your hands. Try to make other shapes and use other colors!

Slippery Soap Paper Craft

(A blue's clues character is "slippery soap")

I cut the template out with felt and then had the kids decorate their "felt" soap with stickers and markers.
