Today was a fun day with the wolf den.  So sorry that I didn't take any pictures!  We had lots of bubble making going on and the boys had to do some scientific thinking to see if the bubbles would all be spherical if we used different shapes.  They also made some pretty big bubbles with their hand made wands made from string and straws.  Ask them about it and they can tell you what they did.  There are a couple of recipes that I will post so that you can make some bubbles at home.  The one I used didn't work as well as I had hoped, but the store bought bubbles were great.  Here are the recipes:

6 cups water (distilled is best)
3/4 cup corn syrup (Karo Light)
2 cups of Joy or Dawn dish washing liquid
Mix together.  Let set 4 hours and then enjoy!

12 cups of water
1 cup dish soap
3 T glycerin

I did the second recipe and I think that there is too much water/dilution.  I would recommend only 6 cups of water for that one too.  Try it out and see if you can make some big bubbles at home this summer.  The boys were all so fun to watch as they experimented with the bubbles.  

Looking ahead, the following Wednesday, May 26, our wolf den has been asked by the Edgemont 1st Ward Young Men's President to post the colors and stay for an Eagle Court of Honor.  The young man getting his Eagle is Brand Nelson.  As a result of this invitation, we will meet at the church in full uniform at 6:45 p.m. and be a part of an Eagle Court of Honor.  This should be a great experience for the boys and they will be able to see a special event relating to scouts.  This is something that can be checked off in their books if it hasn't been done already.  It should last one hour and be done by 8:00 p.m.  If you need to pick up your son before it ends, please make arrangements with me so that I can have your son ready to leave without disrupting the Eagle Scout program.  Thank you so much for all that you do to help us as den mothers.  Have a great week!

See you next week.
