{Bubbles} and a {Fun Summer Lunch}

We are still working through our Summer Checklist, and yesterday we checked off #8 {Make Homemade Bubbles}.  We also had a fun little lunch.  I made some peanut butter sandwiches, cut out flower shapes with a cookie cutter, added some banana "leaves" and a cheese string stem... and voila!

Have you ever made homemade bubbles?  It is easy, inexpensive, and loads of fun.  Mix 12 cups of water with 1 cup light corn syrup.  Stir gently.  Then, add 2 cups of liquid dish soap, and stir gently again.

You can buy bubble wands, or experiment with making your own with things around the house.  My boys really enjoyed this part.

Are you working on your own summer checklist?  What has been your favorite activity so far?
