What could be more fun than bubbles, bubbles, bubbles? GIANT Bubbles!
Get ready for an entire evening of nothing but bubbles.
Super-Duper Giant Bubbles
Grape Soda "POP"
Bubble Gum "Bubble Blowing" Competition
Before We Begin
1 - 55 Gallon Drum (Barrel)
A Leaf Blower or Shop-Vac (One that blows air OUT!)
A Long Hose (Shop Vac Hose)
Baby Shampoo or Bubble Bath
Ratchet Strap or Rope...or both!
A Large Beach Towel
Fill the barrel half full of Water, Add Soap (More Soap/More Bubbles), Place Hose into the Barrel, and place the towel over the top of the barrel. Place the ratchet strap (or rope) around the barrel and around the towel...catching all edges. Tighten the ratchet strap tightly. Turn on the leaf blower/shop vac.
If you have a lot of children consider preparing more than one barrel.
You can prepare everything in advance and simply move the hose from one barrel to the other when ready to fire up another barrel.
If you have a lot of helpers, consider rotating the children between the activities so that everyone is not trying to do the same activity at the same time.
