  • If doing this activity with children 5 and under, it’s advised an adult blows through the straw
  • Try using different sizes of containers to get larger or small bubbles. E.g. try a yoghurt container for smaller bubbles and a dip container for larger bubbles
  • Try layering colours
  • Try doing this over a canvas
  • Use up the rest of the bubble liquid outside – blow bubbles with wands
