Circles Everywhere

We are going to have a lot of fun with shapes. We started with circles. We made "Cindy Circle" out of circle shapes and we made a circle picture stamping all different sizes of circle objects. Some kids really got involved and it was hard to drag them away from the table.

It didn't leave a lot of time for our GIANT bubbles! The kids were surprised that round bubbles always appeared no matter what shape we blew through. They each took a quick turn blowing a BIG bubble, and I promised them we would spend a little more bubble time next week.

Bubble Recipe
1/4 cup Dawn liquid dishwashing soap
2 1/2 cups water
Bubble Blower - Loop about 3 feet of string through two drinking straws (see how it should look in the pictures above.) Dip in soap solution. Carefully lift it up and open it to make a rectangle. Blow through the film, or lift it up slowly.
