This blog is here for you to find fun learning activities to do with your children. We share great ideas we find and love on the Internet, as well as ideas we come up with on our own! We also like to share resources we find helpful.

To find ideas for your child, click on the age range blog label or on the theme/topic you are looking for (on the left side of the page). In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child. When you try an activity out, please comment and let us (and everyone else) know how your child liked it!

DIY Bubbles

Bubbles always tend to be very messy around here. Though bubble solution isn't generally expensive, it's always nice to know how to whip up a batch when needed. Certainly saves a trip to the store!

Carefully mix ingredients:
1 cup Dawn or Joy detergent
10 cups Distilled water (you can try tap water first to see if it'll do okay. Mine was fine.)
1/4 cup Glycerin or White Karo syrup

(Of course you could always cut the recipe in half or whatever your needs may be).

Then look around for things you can use as wands. Some ideas:
  • clean flyswatters
  • sour cream/yogurt lids w/ holes
  • pipe cleaners
  • cookie cutters
  • slotted spoons or spatula
  • coat hangers (wire)
  • make a circle w/ your thumb and pointer finger, dip it in the solution!
