Bubble Games Refill Station
Fill a plastic container with a spout at the bottom (like the ones used for sun tea) with bubble solution and label it "Bubble Refill Station". The kids can easily fill up their bottles with the spout. Or place paper cups next to the Bubble refill station and use the cup instead of bottles.
Also have several different styles of bubble wands for the kids to choose from and try out.
Bubble Sword Battle
Give each child a foam sword and let them pop the bubbles with it.
Pretend the bubbles are a bubble dragon or a thick forest that the kids must conquer.
Blowing Bubble Art
Place bubble mixture in a large bowl. Add a few drops of food coloring. Give kids a straw and have them place the straw in the bowl and blow making the bubbles rise above the lip of the bowl. Then have them take a piece of paper and lay it on top of the bowl. Take the paper off and they will have a fun bubble picture.
No Hands Allowed
Have the kids try and pop bubbles without using their hands. They can use their heads, elbows, legs, feet, knees, etc.
Catch a Bubble
Blow bubbles and then try and catch them on the bubble wand. See if multiple bubbles can be caught on the wand.
Hula Hoop Drift
Divide children and let half blow bubbles and the other half hold the hula hoops. Have the kids hold the hula hoops out and the others try and blow bubbles through them. Then switch so everyone has a turn.
Have a contest to see who can blow the biggest bubble. Make sure all the wands used are the same size.
Have a contest to see who can blow the most bubbles with one breathe. Line the kids up and one at a time have them blow as many bubbles as they can with just one blow.
See how long the kids can keep their bubbles in the air by having them blow underneath them to keep them from popping.
Give each child 2 bubble wands and bubble solution. Have a contest to see who can blow bubbles and then stack them the highest on the second wand.
Blow lots of bubbles and let the kids enjoy popping them.
Set up a start and finish line. Have kids line up at the start line and blow a bubble. They then have to blow that bubble across the field and over the finish line.
Divide kids into two teams and have them stand in line one behind the other. Set up a turn around point at least 30 yards from the starting line. One at a time the children will blow a bubble and catch it on their wand.
They must then run to the turn around point and back to their team with out losing or popping their bubble. When they return to the start then the next person in line goes. If a bubble pops or they lose their bubble from their wand they must run back to the start and begin again. The team with all their players to finish first wins.
Played like the regular game of tag except "it" has a bottle of bubbles and to tag someone they must blow bubbles on the other player. When a player gets tagged they take the bubbles and try and tag someone else.
This is a fun game where kids try and dodge the bubbles that are being blown at them . Have the players line up about 10 feet from other players who are blowing bubbles. If a bubble pops on them they them switch places with the person who blew the bubbles.
