Bubble Pipe

Paper Cup
Straw
Dish detergent
Water
Food coloring

Help your child make this simple bubble pipe.  Poke a pencil hole on the side of a paper cup, one inch from the bottom, and stick a drinking straw through it, halfway into the cup.  Pour dish detergent into the cup until the straw is covered.  Add a little water and a few drops of food coloring.  Blow gently until beautiful colored bubbles froth over the rim of the cup and fill the air.
