- Scalloped shaped pool noodle
- Dowell (12-by-3/16 inch)
- Green craft foam
- Green crayon
- Dish soap
- White sugar
- Serrated knife
- Wide-mouth container
- Mix 1 cup of warm water with 2 Tablespoons of liquid dish soap, 1 Tablespoon of glycerin and 1 teaspoon of sugar.
- Use the seratted knife to cut ¾-inch slices of the noodle to create flowers. Also make a small slit in the bottom center of the flower.
- Peel the paper from the green crayon.
- Fold the green foam in half and cut a leaf shape. Cut a very small slit in the center so that the leaves will fit snuggly on the stem.
- Color the dowel by rubbing the green crayon along the length.
- Put a little glue on one end of the dowel and insert it in the bottom of the flower.
- Slide the leaf onto the stem a few inches below the flower.
- Dip the flower in the bubble liquid and see how many bubbles you can make.
Note: Remind the kids to be sure that the center of the flower has some of the bubble juice before they blow. They should also blow gently and slowly.
