I love being outside with my children for fresh air and Vitamin D as much as possible. We always make sure to cover our face and body with sunscreen before we do our favorite activities, like blowing bubbles! When I taught elementary school in Georgia, we had a real Bubbleologist visit for Science Day. She taught our class all there is to know about making the best outdoor bubbles. If you’re looking for an simple bubble recipe that you can make at home with your kids, try following these easy steps with ingredients you already have at home.
The best outdoor bubbles are made with two ingredients – dish soap and water. With the correct proportions, you can make the ultimate bubbles. This simple bubble recipe is easy to follow using ingredients already in your home.
Ingredients for Bubbles
1/2 cup dish soap
1 1/2 cups water
Bubble wand (you can use any size)
Step 1. Gather your ingredients.
Step 2. Mix dish soap and water in a container.
Step 3. Allow the mixture to settle overnight – frothy bubbly bubble mix won’t work well.
Step 4. Blow bubbles.
Protect Your Skin in the Sun While Blowing Bubbles
After making your bubble recipe, make sure you protect your skin in the sun while blowing bubbles. Taking appropriate measures to protect our skin in the sun has been a HUGE part of my motherhood story since my daughters were growing in my belly. I have sensitive skin myself and when I was pregnant, it was even more risky to be out in the sun without SPF. I’ve kept my girls covered as best as possible when we go outside as the temperatures rise and always apply sunscreen before we set out to play.
My daughters LOVE being outside and know they can’t leave the house until we have ourselves a sunscreen application party. Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection® Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 is a mild, tear-free sunscreen formulated with Active Naturals® Oat to help lock in moisture and soothe babies’ delicate skin, while 100% Zinc Oxide provides photo-stable, broad spectrum coverage to protect from the sun. Ailey has had sensitive skin since birth and this sunscreen contain the highest level* of zinc oxide for superior UVA/UVB protection for babies with sensitive skin.
I also like to use AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 since it provides 24-hr skin hydration against chlorine, salt water and sweat. It is formulated with skin-soothing ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal, which hydrates skin to keep it soft, smooth and feeling healthier than before sun exposure. It is fast absorbing, oil-free, and water & sweat-resistant (for 80 minutes).
Make sure to apply sunscreen on the face and body even when it is cloudy outside. Just because you can’t see the sun doesn’t mean it’s not shining harmful ray down on your skin.
