Snort bubble paper

Have you ever got a yell from mom for blowing bubbles into your milk? Well, Maharaja Icky for one loves to snort through his sherbet! Here’s a great reason to blow bubbles through a straw while creating something wonderful.

What you need to get started:

  • Old newspaper for covering up your floor
  • Poster paint in three bright colours
  • Three plastic drinking straws
  • Dishwashing liquid soap
  • Water
  • Sheets of paper that you want to bubble up
  • Three shallow bowls

Let’s get bubbling!

Mix about 6 spoonfuls of dishwashing liquid and a small amount of water into each of the plates. You should have a thick soap solution. (later when you blow into this, if its not bubbling enough, just add in some more soap solution since the results can vary by brand)

Stir in a few globs of poster colour into each bowl and mix it into the soap solution.

Put your straw into the solution and blow into it to create bubbles. Make sure you don’t suck up any liquid!

Try making big and small bubbles in your bowl by blowing slowly or fast.

Take your paper and gently touch the bubbles with it. You just need an impression of the bubbles so don’t press down too hard.

You can make single or multiple colour snort bubble sheets.

Go ahead and get bubbling! Come back soon for some fun stuff to make with your snort bubble paper.


Rosogulla eyes

If you love rosogullas as much as Maharaja Icky, this is the simplest recipe for you to put together with no help from mum – well maybe just a teeny tiny bit of help.

What you need to get started:

  • One rosogulla
  • Three gems
  • A tablespoon of chocolate sauce or strawberry sauce
  • A plate

I’m eating already!

Squeeze out some of the juice from the rosogulla. We know that’s messy but then this is an icky recipe!

Here’s the bit that you need help from an adult. Have them cut the rosogulla into two halves. Now they may leave you to your devious designs.

Arrange the two halves, flat side down on the plate.

Place two gems as eyes on top.

Place a gem as a nose.

Finish with a swirl of sauce to make the mouth.

Lift the rosogulla, dip into the saucy mouth on your plate and munch away.
