Parent & Child Corner
Have you ever taken a nap
in the crook of a buttefly's wing
or climbed into a nightingales nest
and asked her to teach you to sing
Have you ever licked the honey
from a honey-bee's sticky feet
or marched in line with busy black ants
who were headed for something to eat
Or maybe you've perched with a hoot owl
stayed awake and talked through the night
saw all the things that he sees
in the wee hours before morning light
I've never actually done these things...
was just wondering 'how about you'?
They are simply part of the long list
of cool things I want to do

Goosey goosey gander where shall I wander,
Upstairs, downstairs and in my lady's chamber
There I met an old man who wouldn't say his prayers,
I took him by the left leg and threw him down the stairs.

That fuzz on the pipe cleaner comes in handy, as it helps these little bubble-blowing wonders soak up a lot of soapy solution. Pipe cleaners (also known as chenille stems) are also a lot easier to handle and manipulate than hangers and can be used to satisfy a large number of bubble-blowers at one time. With a little help, toddlers and younger kids can even have a go at making their own bubble wands and can learn from what works and what doesn't. Since pipe cleaners aren't expensive and they're plentiful, kids get many chances to experiment. To make different shapes, use cookie cutters as guides.
