They're not big bubbles, they're MEGA BIG BUBBLES! It was so much fun doing these MEGA BIG BUBBLES! The "to do" part is pretty easy and the fun part is MEGA BIG! Alright, I'll stop being nerdy. It will be hard, but I'll try. ; )

Anyway, these work best when it is not windy. The great thing about these was that it was as much fun for me to play with as it was for the kids. The day we talked about bubbles, we looked at different sized and shaped bubble blowers and made predictions as to what size and shape the bubbles would be when we blew them. Then we went outside and tested our predictions.

Here's What You Need:
  • A big container of bubbles or homemade bubbles
  • Wire coat hanger
  • Yarn
  • Wide cookie sheet (It needs to be big enough to fit the bent hanger inside.)
Here's What You Do:
  1. Bend the wire hanger into a circle. Make it as symmetrical as possible.
  2. Tightly wrap yarn around the hanger circle.
  3. Fill the cookie sheet with bubbles.
  4. Put the hanger in and slowly lift one end out of the bubble solution until it creates a film across the whole hanger.
  5. Move the hanger through the air and watch the beauty and magic!

A couple of quick pointers: Make sure to have a bucket of water near by to wash hands in. When these MEGA BIG BUBBLES pop, they pack quite a bubbly punch. Also, be careful when doing it on cement because if the bubbles spill, the sidewalk can get really slippery.
