GIANT SUPER STRONG BUBBLES

Spend the day blowing super duty bubbles!! If you have the kiddos put socks or gloves on their hands, the bubbles will be nearly un-poppable! The oils in your skin cause bubbles to pop.

OUTDOOR WATER PAD

A fun way to get cool if you don’t have a pool! Go to your local store and get painters plastic, parchment paper, duct tape, and glitter if you wanna glam it up a little. If you have an iron there’s a better chance of avoiding leaks!
