Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade girls spent the morning participating in bubble-related literacy activities.  The day began with a read-aloud of Bubble Trouble, written by Stephen Krensky.  Girls then imagined themselves as bubbles and wrote stories about their own bubble adventures.  Mali, age 6, wrote “If I were a bubble I would be floating everywhere!”

After lunch the real fun started.  The girls went out to the Hitchcock Sports Field & Playground just east of the North facility and enjoyed a professional Bubble Party.  Three “Bubble Masters” from Yola’s Bubble Solutions helped the girls create bubbles that were as big as the girls, themselves.  Every girl got a turn with small bubble wands, big bubble wands and some girls even mastered the art of making bubbles with nothing but their own fingers.  Azuree, six-years-old, said “All of the bubble were different shapes.  I made one that was as big as an elephant!”

Following the Bubble Party, each girl received a miniature bottle of bubble soap and a bubble wand as a party favor to take home.The bubble-themed activities were offered in conjunction with the GIRLStart reading program at Girls Inc.
