Mondays with Mrs. Sparkles: Bubble Play

Early spring, is without a doubt, my favorite time of year. For our family it is a time to celebrate birthdays, digging our hands into the dirt and, for my 5-year-old daughter and 20-month-old son, a time for renewing their passion for bubbles.
Here are some bubble time fun projects for you and your family:

Bubble Painting – Two Ways
Version 1:
  • Add either food coloring or watercolor to your bubble liquid (one color per bottle)
  • Blow bubbles by hand or with a bubble machine
  • Catch bubbles with paper
  • Allow to dry

Version 2:
  • Pour bubble liquid (or soap and water) into cups
  • Add either food coloring, watercolor or tempera paint to the liquid (one color per cup)
  • Allow children to “blow bubbles” into the cups of liquid
  • Scoop and drop clusters of bubbles onto paper or press paper into overflowing bubbles
  • Allow to dry

Additional Bubble fun can be found close by:
Louisville Science Center: In the lobby, step inside one of the largest bubbles you will ever experience.

Experience the Bubble Truck: Come out for the 19th annual Frankfort Avenue Easter parade, sponsored by the Frankfort Avenue Business Association, on Saturday, April 23. The parade will begin at 11:45 a.m. in front of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church.
Bubble Tea: Looking for a unique sweet treat? Look no further than De Lat’s Gateaux and Bakery at 6915 Southside Drive. Bubble Tea is a mixture of foamed tea and milk and tapioca or jelly balls. Sound strange? Like your mother always said, “You have to try it before you tell me you don’t like it.”
