Before embarking on the subway (A/C train for me) and joining in the (mostly) grown-up fun of BlogHer, I took the kids to the country for a week of decompression. We relied on water, grass and sun for most of our target=blank" fun. A healthy stash of bubble juice from Little Kids greatly added to our enjoyment.
These are not the bubbles that I grew up with. Now they have scents--Jelly Belly Pop-Up Bubbles ($1.99)--and are (relatively) spill-free--No Spill Bubble Tumbler ($1.99).We took them to the beach to watch them get blown in the breeze. Be warned--sand and bubble juice do not mix. A better bet, hanging out on the porch swings and sending the kids chasing bubbles in the grass. Oh the sweet moments of summer.
At night we took out the Bubble Light ($9.99). It does require batteries, but the flashlight made it worth the extra expenditure. Evening bubbles are a treat. And I have read somewhere that mosquitos hate them--score!
My advice: Make the most of these last few weeks of unscheduled time with the kids. Grab some bubbles and a blanket and get outside.
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get oodles of samples.
