grandma's bookshelf - Big Bubbles!

I am very happy for the opportunity to let you know about a book and activity kit I recently reviewed . . . How to Make Monstrous, Huge, Unbelievable BIG Bubbles from Klutz! 

How to Make Monstrous, Huge, Unbelievably Big Bubbles Author - David Stein
Publisher - Klutz
Ages 6 and up

Favorite Features -
  • includes The Bubble Thing . . . so you can make these incredible bubbles!
  • includes a great recipe for making "All-Weather Bubble Juice" . . . your grandchildren will have fun making the bubble solution . . . my Josiah was ready to jump right in and do this! He said, "I will bring a chair into the kitchen so I can make the bubbles!" Which he did!
  • complete, easy-to-follow directions for assembling your Bubble Thing
  • informative information about the weather and how it affects your bubble-making
  • ideas for making bubbles with household items like paper towel tubes, coat hangers and more
  • info on the science of how bubbles work
  • tips for some fun "bubble magic tricks"!
This book is not only educational and informative, but great fun! My hubby pulled it out and used it with Josiah this weekend and the fun we had, well, if you only get one book/resource to enjoy with your grandchildren this Fall, most definitely make it this Bubble book with the Bubble Thing! Josiah isn't really tall enough to make the bubbles himself, but he had tremendous fun dipping the Bubble Thing into the Bubble Juice and then chasing down the humongous bubbles Poppa made so he could pop them! He could not wait for daddy and momma to get here so he could show them how to make giant bubbles! (And many, many more humongous bubbles were made - and popped!)

I love this book, but the thing I truly love the most is how it gave us the opportunity to amaze, delight and have great fun with our grandson! Memories were most certainly made with the Bubble Thing!


  1. Thank you!!! That looks like so much fun!!! The grandkids and I blow bubbles together all the time. Wait till they get a load of these big bubbles!
