Make a Spring Bubbles Kit

Playing outside in the spring with bubbles is the best and taking them with you to the park is fun!  What kid doesn't love bubbles?  I made a spring bubbles kit that will travel well and has all the necessities for a great time blowing bubbles!  I REUSED a 21.8 oz. Nesquik container to make the kit (6½" tall) and our bubbles and blower fit perfect.

* supplies: container, Mod Podge, patterned paper, wide ribbon (½" to 1"), 2 brads

* cut your patterned paper- mine were 1½" and 1" strips

* apply Mod Podge in small sections and smooth paper strips down

* when the container is covered apply a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of strips and allow to dry

* cut a 2½" piece of wide cloth ribbon, fold ends under a ½", make a slit with a craft knife, push brad through
* cut a small slit in both sides of container with knife and attach your ribbon strap

in the bubbles kit: the best bubbles (or make good homemade bubbles), bubble blowers, a few small bubbles (less spilling-- find them at party stores or Walmart) for kids and any friends that come around at the park, a baggie of wipes (for the clean-freak momma like me!)
A spring adventure or exploring kit would also be fun (binoculars, magnifying glass, top, mini frisbee, bouncy ball, etc.)!!  An 'outside fun kit' would make a unique kid birthday gift!!

Tumblebug Races

I saved this fun tumblebug craft from my May '07 Family Fun Magazine and we made them last week.  Look how cute these bugs are- a little wiped out too from so much racing!  They weren't difficult to craft.  I used hot glue to save time.  The sides don't match up perfectly to the body but the bugs still tumble fast and fun!  Family Fun used foam core for a ramp.  I cut some white wall board insulation and glued black fun foam to the sides.  Our race ramp will last the lifetime of our tumblebugs!  My kids love having tumblebug races.  Go to Family Fun for the tumblebug instructions!

Are you having fun with any bug crafts or anything else that has to do with spring??  I'm having a 'buggy for spring' link-up party on the first day of spring, March 20th, and it will be open for a month!!  Come join the fun and find some good ideas too!
