We have just had a lovely afternoon blowing dandelion bubbles through the plant’s stem 🙂 The trio loved making these and then experimenting with them also.
It’s a really easy activity to prepare, and because it’s outside all mess is outdoors too…bonus!
What do you need for blowing dandelion bubbles?
Washing up liquid
Bowl for mixing
and of course….dandelions!!
Make up some soapy water
Cut the flower head off
Trim the other end of the stalk too
Swirl around one end in the soapy water (not the end you want to put up to your mouth!!).
Then gently blow through the stem, and you should see your bubble 🙂
My trio loved blowing dandelion bubbles, and then experimenting with different lengths of stem, different diameters of stem, variations of puffing, and who could make the biggest dandelion bubbles. It was such a lovely, but chilly day, they stayed there for a good while. Afterwards the chalks came out for drawing, and even a small potion was whipped up with the newly flowering plants.
