A water table is so much fun. A water tables with bubbles is even more fun. A water table with RAINBOW bubbles - well, it causes hiccups from laughing so hard! This is our second time playing with rainbow bubbles, it always causes instant smiles, squeals of immense joy, and the laughter that makes your heart just melt away.
How can something so simple as food dye on bubbles create this type of incredible reaction? It's been said that "it's all in the little things", well that's definitely true. To make a rainbow bubble table, we poured in about three big squirts (tablespoons) of bubble bath (from The Dollar Tree), then used the hose to make the bubbles nice and frothy. The kidabunks chose their liquid food dye colors and began squeezing the bottles and making little droplets of color on the bubbles. We played for awhile. Then we tossed in a couple of glow sticks and glow bracelets into the water (the water turned a deep dark purple from all the food dye that the kidabunks added). I wasn't able to get any good pictures of the glow sticks under the water though- I really need to spend time (HA!) learning how to use my camera. The twins loved "diving" for glowing treasure. We started out fishing for glowing treasure, but Wild One started flailing around the toy fishing pole and Little Miss was not happy with all the splashing.
Wild One made a huge pink foam cupcake, but by the time I grabbed my camera he poured it out onto the palm tree in the background. He said the palm tree was hungry.
