With a big family that includes five boys, we are used to kids getting messy around here. It’s fun for the kids, and it really doesn’t hurt anything. Whether the girls are baking mud pies or the twins are making dirt angels, it’s not a big deal- nothing a shower won’t fix.
The kids all love water play and ask if they can turn on the hose or use water guns on a regular basis, but sometimes it’s too chilly for them to be getting all wet. A fun alternative yet keeping with the messiness are the Crayola Outdoor Colored Bubbles.
When these debuted last year, many parents were put off because they didn’t expect the color to stick to clothes and other surfaces. But it washes right off, so to us it was just fun.
This year, they’ve created a new version that keeps all the fun for kid and makes clean up easier for parents. Color magically rubs off skin, hoses off of many outdoor surfaces and washes out of cotton and cotton blend clothing. However, even with the old version we never had any issues with the colors washing off easily.
I also think they’re a little brighter in color than last year. They come in several bright shades- like blue, purple, pink, orange, and yellow.
We love that the bubble launcher is powered by a hand crank, so no worries about running out of batteries. We currently own two of them.
