I keep saying how hot it is here in South Florida and how I am always looking to keep the kids entertained while keeping them away from electronics, which is proving to be more and more difficult as the temperature rises. So I’ve gathered a selection of toys and games that can be played outdoors to make sure they don’t spend too much time in front of the TV, computer, or any other electronic device.
You do not need to break the bank. You would be surprised how easy and inexpensive it can be to have a great time outdoors with kids of all ages. My kids are three and eleven, so I try to find activities and games that work for both of them. One of their favorites? Bubbles!
Yes, you heard that right. The kids have a blast making these giant bubbles! We got them a cute sprinkler pool for the backyard and a set of the South Beach bubbles wands. It was an immediate hit. After all, there is the only one thing that’s more fun than bubbles, and that’s GIANT BUBBLES!
Why Giant Bubbles Are a Good Idea
The South Beach WOWmazing™ wands are lightweight and easy to carry with you, which makes them great for parks and outdoor activities.
My daughter loves making bubbles and trying to go bigger each time, and my son loves popping them. This is what I call a win-win situation. And the best part is that these bubble wands are really affordable.
The kits are usually $17.95 and on sale right now for $15.95. The kit includes
• One set of WOWmazing™ wands
• One pouch of WOWmazing™ bubble concentrate
• One WOWmazing™ bubble trick booklet
Any order over $15.00 ships for free, so you do not need to pay for shipping. Plus, the bubble concentrate makes about one quart of the bubble solution, which means lots of giant bubbles!
The wands set comes with one wand and it is great for siblings and plays dates. And the kids love trying to follow the tricks in the booklet to make long-lasting giant bubbles.
My Backyard Set Up
I bought the pool at Sam’s for about $30.00, a pump for the pool for $20.00 at Walmart, and the WOWmazing™ bubbles for $15.95, totaling $65.95. The only thing I might need to add is some more bubble concentrate to last for the rest of the summer!
Now you know my secret. Add bubbles to the backyard fun, and your kids ( and you) will have a blast all summer long!
