At the library we love to provide all kinds of fun experiences for young children and while many of these programs are simply fun (for the sake of fun), our favorite library programs are also built around a "play with a purpose" mentality. Librarians structure programs to build social/emotional skills, cognitive development and physical ability.
Add bubble fun to your summer and learn about surface tension and evaporation at the same time. Last month, I tried a new bubble solution recipe that called for sugar. Now, you can get some fun bubbles from combining water with dishwashing liquid. Adding a little bit of sugar and letting the solution sit overnight leads to big, long-lasting bubbles! Plus, the bubble mixture was just right for blowing bubbles inside other bubbles. Sound impossible?
