I am an adult (most of the time, ha ha), and I still enjoy the simple pleasures in life, from blowing the seeds off Dandelions to coloring on the sidewalk with chalk. I especially love to color with crayons. I think I’ll always be a big kid at heart, and that is fine with me.
Now that the weather is nice outside (for the most part) I enjoy doing something else that often brings joy to my neighbors – blow bubbles.
We live on a top floor condo that overlooks the parking lot. When I blow bubble on my balcony they fly all over the place. My neighbors enjoy seeing the bubbles floating around when they are walking to/from their cars. They almost always bring a smile to another person’s face. It’s hard not to smile when you see bubbles. There is just something so wonderful about them.
Usually the bubbles I use are the ones you get from the local drug store or dollar store. Those are fine, but there is nothing that special about them.
I have seen huge bubbles on television, and I always thought it would be fun to make bubbles that big. But how? Those little plastic wands certainly cannot produce huge bubbles.
I have seen people make big bubbles using hula hoops before, but there has to be an easier way. There is! It’s called WOWmazing Giant Bubbles, available at South Beach Bubbles. WOWmazing Giant Bubbles uses something I would have never thought of before – rope.
I was sent a few packages of WOWmazing Giant Bubbles from South Beach Bubbles to review.
Each package of WOWmazing Giant Bubbles comes with everything you need to make many HUGE bubbles – probably the biggest bubbles you’ve ever seen (or at least the biggest ones I’ve ever seen).
Each package comes with a special bubble solution, the bubble “wands,” special stickers to decorate the wands (depending on the kit they could be sun activated, glow in the dark, cold activated…) as well as a tips and tricks booklet.
All you will need is a bucket to put the solution in (it’s a mix in solution) and water.
I received samples of these bubbles a long time ago to review. Since I don’t have a yard (just our balcony, which is not that big), I brought the bubbles into work. I work with children and I knew this would be a lot of fun for them to play with.
Because these are not my children, I was unable to take video or photos of them. I had a few images of them with their hands on the wands, and the bucket of water (it was really a sand pail), but that didn’t really show much. Sadly, I was not able to take a video of them in action, for obvious reasons. If I didn’t have so many kids running around, it would have been easier, but there was always a kid zooming past, either chasing the bubble, on the playground or on the concrete.
This brief video shows WOWmazing Giant Bubbles in action.
As you can see, these are HUGE bubbles.
To enjoy these giant bubbles, simply add the bubble solution and water into a bucket. A sand bucket is fine, as long as you can dip the entire rope into it. You can use other containers you might have around the home as well (again, as long as the entire rope fits inside of it).
Mix the solution up, dunk in the rope on the wands, remove and create your bubbles.
There are different ways you can create bubbles. You can either let the wind/breeze “blow” bubbles for you using the wand, or you can run around and let the air flow from that create the bubbles. You can also use your own breath to blow bubbles, but the little kids that I work with had a hard time doing that.
The first few times we used the bubble wand, it didn’t work as well as we had liked. But once we got into it, we figured out what worked best, and then everything worked out perfectly.
My little work kids didn’t hold the wand far enough apart to create bubbles (the rope was touching or wrapped round it’s self too much to work properly). The older kids seemed to get it to work from the start. Once the little kids understood how to hold the wands, they got the bubbles to work too.
The solution mix will last a lot longer if you slowly dip in the rope from the wands, and slowly remove it. Some of the kids would do it too quickly and splash the solution all over the place, leaving less solution to have fun with.
Some of my work kids had so much fun making these bubbles that they would literally soak up the very last drop of solution.
The bubbles would fly around depending on the wind/breeze and the overall size of the bubble. Sometimes they seemed to stay afloat for a long time, where as others popped quickly after being formed. It’s the same for all bubbles. It didn’t seem to matter to the kids. They loved to chase them around and would squeal at the really big ones.
