Bubbles have saved us from many a meltdown as they are the perfect tool of distraction.
Here are our FAVORITE bubbles.
There are 5 bubble ports in the wand thing-y and let me just declare – when you blow into it, you won’t even believe how many bubbles come pouring out! AND it happens to be on sale right now at Gymboree for $4.80!
The Happy Buddy is super content with just the above amazing-ness, but here are a few other magical ways to jazz up your bubble-blowing fun this summer!
Make and Takes had fun mixing up some homemade bubbles. Go HERE for the great recipe AND for some clever ideas on some different items to use for blowing your bubbles – like the top end of a salt shaker! So smart!
How Does She? made snake bubbles using an empty plastic water bottle, a rag, and some soap! Your Happy Buddies will love having competitions to see who can blow the longest snake!
Making Memories used bubbles to paint beautiful pictures! It’s cheap, simple, and soooo fun.
Busy Bee Kids Crafts invented this cool Bubble Factory out of just a few materials you probably already have in your pantry. It will probably occupy your Happy Buddies for hours!
Who knew that pipe cleaners make the best bubble wands?! Ewe Hooo! made some cute ones for her daughter’s birthday party. She said that the chenille absorbs the bubble mixture and makes even bigger bubbles. I love that these can be personalized to whatever shape suits your fancy!
Plus, you should have pipe cleaners handy since they are in your Emergency Summer Fun Basket!
How many of us have spent longer than ten minutes trying to fish those plastic wands out of our bubble containers?! I can’t wait to replace those lil’ buggers with my new cute-and-easily-accessible pipe cleaner wands!
Go HERE for a pipe cleaner bubble wand tutorial.
And finally, I found this fun bubble-themed birthday party over at One Charming Party. The party guests climbed into a plastic pool filled with bubble solution and actually got put inside a jumbo bubble – they called it the HUMAN BUBBLE! How COOL is that?!

There you have it, Happy Home Friends!
I hope your summer ‘bursts’ with all kinds of bubble mania!
