How to blow a bubble

Pinterest.That's all I have to say....  it's addicting, but FULL Of awesome ideas.

Here's what I'm talking about...

We did these super cute How to Blow a Bubble activities.  I loved it because it is cross-curricular... and when we talk about Common Core Standards- killing two (or multiple) birds with one stone is a big PLUS!! :)

Here's how mine turned out:  (and please, if this was your original idea, let me know- I'd love to give credit where credit is due.)

The kids got to have practice with:  story sequence, non-fiction "how to" story telling, ordinal numbers, as well as many fine motor skills needed for the artsy portion of the activity.

So, I made a printable activity to use with the activity.  Click to download it via Google Docs HERE!
Here's what you'll get:

Leave me a comment if you were able to use it!! 

In other news... I'm working on compiling a list of all these amazing blogs- so many are popping up all over the place, my newsfeed is getting overwhelming.  I've created pages at the top of my blog to help me keep track of all of them. Please comment below if you'd like your blog listed in my pages.  I've already got some up there, and I'm going to keep adding, but I dont want to forget anyone- so if yours is missing, please let me know! :)

    How did you attach the bubble gum??? My students are ready to put it all together and I can't figure out how to keep the balloon up so it looks like gum! :)
