The Super Foam-erator!!!

When i found the instructions to the super foam-erator on Betz White's blog i knew that this was going to be wildly fun for my kiddo's. Right away i began rooting around in our recycling bin for some bottles to use. Lucky me, i found some.
Then i had to dig up a old towel that could be sacrificed for fun. I cut a pieces of towel, rubber banded it to the bottom of the cut off bottle, as the instructions said, and then we headed outside. Each got a dish with a little kitchen dish soap in it and we had a water table set up and ready to go. You just get it a little wet then dip it in the soap and blow. Out comes a giant tube of bubbles. I love that in the picture you can see that Mitch was starting to inhale his bubbles...he was sucking in air too hard and got a mouthful.
Soon the towel pieces came off and they began washing themselves and anything else they could get their hands on. Not the original intention of the project but it kept them busy none the less.
