This activity is pretty straight forward and doesn’t require a lot of pictures to explain, so here goes!

    • Insert a straw into the container and blow!!! (explain that sucking will be yucky!)  O accidentally sucked in the mixture even after the warning and she ended up blowing a bubble out of her mouth which made  M laugh so hard which in turn made O so happy that she forgot about the yucky taste in her mouth! (We did keep some juice on hand just in case we needed to get a yucky taste out of our mouths)
