Life Hack: Bubble Blowing
Today's life hack makes me so happy!
My kids (like all kids) love blowing bubbles, but as the adult, I am generally holding onto the bubbles so that they don't spill (so the kids don't cry!). I don't really mind holding the bubbles, but my hands do get pretty sloppy with all the soapy drippings.
Option B is that the kids hold their own bubbles, and have soap dripping down their arms, or they set them down somewhere, and inevitably spill them. Then the crying starts.
But this....oh this glorious idea...I saw it on Pinterest, and my life changed forever! :)
It's pretty self-explanatory, and (as you can see) doesn't need hard-core tape to hold it up. All I had was painters tape for some reason. Anywho, it worked great, the kids had a blast (well, the youngest missed out because she was in bed having a hard time waking up from her nap), there was no soapy mess, and no crying! The best life hack ever. The End.
Oh, wait, one last thing. Open the bottle(s), take off the seal under the lid, then put the lids back on before attempting to tape it up. Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but I don't want anyone saying I never told them, and they have a bubble soap disaster!
Oh, wait, one more last thing. I don't mind kids getting messy, they are kids after all! But if there is an option that avoids it, I would be a bonkers parent not to at least try it! If I had never seen this idea, my kids would still be blowing bubbles, getting super messy, and crying over spilled soap. Blowing bubbles would not be eliminated from our lives because it was messy. I just needed to say that.
The End (for real).

Genius I tell ya, genius! This is the major reason we don't do bubbles everyday. Our independent little guy wants to do it all on his own without mommy holding it...but after about half a minute (ok half a second) all the bubbles are spilt, he's sad cause the bubbles are done and he is upset cause he is sticky. Thank you!

Well, I'm glad you clarified your parenting beliefs in the last paragraph because I was going to judge the heck out of you!
