Brief DescriptionBubbles inspire learning, fun -- and they clean desks too. A nice Field Day addition!
Bubbles, recipe, field day
Looking for a memorable conclusion to your field day festivities? Break out the bubbles! Have a contests to see which classroom blows the biggest bubble; the most bubbles at a time; the coolest looking bubbles
You can use bubbles indoors or outdoors. Outdoors is probably best, unless the wind is blowing. Give each student a straw and a paper plate; pour some bubble liquid on the plate and let students experiment with blowing unique bubbles. Using bubbles indoors, however, offers a big advantage you might not have considered. Pour a small puddle of the bubble liquid on each student's desk and, at the end of the activity, the desks will be spotless! (Children must take care to keep the bubbles on their desk; bubbles can harm some carpets.)
