This past weekend was perfect. Blue skies, green grass, warm sunshine, and hours of outdoor play! Though my boys are getting older, they still love bubbles. One would think that with age would come more careful bubble pouring, but no…spills still happen. That’s why I’m excited to share this Self-Serve Bubble Refill Station.
Kids can simply pump the bubbles into their container, then play!
No spills, messes, or wasted bubbles.
Easy Self-Serve Bubble Refill Station for Kids
A 2016 consumer survey on in-home recycling habits, conducted in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., showed that 60% of parents would be more likely to discuss recycling with their children if it was an activity they could do together and they had more creative, engaging ways to explain the impact of recycling.
That’s why I’m excited to participate in Care to Recycle®, a program of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., that aims to raise awareness of the importance of recycling personal care products in the bathroom.
This bubble refill station is the perfect conversation starter!
To make this bubble refill station, simply rinse and refill a plastic pump bottle from the bathroom with bubble solution. I like to remove ink and labels from the bottles with nail polish remover, rubbing alcohol, or lemon essential oil. If desired, make a new label for the bottle.
Showing kids how to recycle and reuse is a teachable moment that can have a lasting impact. My children enjoyed brainstorming additional ways we could have repurposed the bottle, as well as the other bottles, tubs, and tubes in our recycling bin.
One-third of regular recyclers admit that it never even occurred to them to recycle in the bathroom. But everything from shampoo and mouthwash bottles to soap and bandage boxes can be recycled. To better understand which bathroom products and cannot be recycled, visit www.caretorecycle.com.
Together, we can help create a healthy planet for our kids today, and for future generations.
