A fun project for a summer day!

Plus, you get to use up some ‘junk’ that may be in your house.



-Bubbles (or dish soap).
I used my favorite bubble recipe: Bouncing Bubbles, but any should work.

-Old mismatched sock

-Empty Bottle (The Gatorade worked best for us b/c it was a more sturdy plastic.)

-Possibly: duct tape or rubber bands

-Possibly: Food coloring






-Cut the bottom off of your bottle. Leave the small part that you drink from.

-Place the sock on the end of your bottle. *You can also cut your sock to fit and attach the sock to the bottle with duct tape or a rubber band. (Our socks were small enough they tightened around the bottle.

-Dip in  your bubbles or watered down dish soap and blow!!

-You could also add food coloring and/or glow in the dark paint (or the stuff from inside a glow stick) for added fun.



 Special thanks to Pinterest for giving me this great idea!

Here’s their project: Housing a Forest: 



Jen Sill

For nearly 15 years Jennifer spent her time clawing her way up the chain as a television producer and newsroom manager. She's helped create and produce newscasts and talkshows. Just as she was realizing some of her professional goals, she decided to give it all up for a family. Although Jennifer has lived in Miami and L.A., she has always called Nebraska home. She always knew she wanted to raise her children in the Midwest. Jennifer is now trying to find her way in a new world. She may be frenzied and frazzled sometimes, but she would not give up being a mom to her almost four year old and her almost two year old for anything.
