There were 3 winners, one from each group. They were Johnny, Riley, and Cooper. Good job guys!
After Grammy made a yummy lunch of home-made mini pizzas for the kids, we headed outside to do mega bubbles! I found the recipe for these on the Internet. I mixed 6 cups distilled water, with 2 cups Joy dishwashing soap, & 3/4 of a cup of light corn syrup. I mixed it up in the morning, & let it sit for a few hours. Then I used wooden dowels with yarn attached to them to make a "D" for the wands.
We started out with the bubble solution in bowls, but they dowel rods would not fit in them all of the way, so we got pans instead, which worked much better! The kids were very frustrated at first because the bubbles just weren't working. After awhile though, they finally started getting big bubbles! I think the sticks & yarn needed to be soaked in the solution before they would really work.
Carson was really good at getting giant bubbles!!
After the novelty of the bubbles wore off, they ran through the sprinkler to cool off & to get all of that soap off of them! =)
