One way to prevent the students from inhaling the soap bubbles is to put
a pin hole in the straw below where their lips will touch the straw.
You can still blow bubbles, but it is harder to inhale the soap.

We had a disasterous/hilarious experience a couple of weeks ago with
It looked so easy in the instructions but the kids couldn't get the
bubbles to rise to cover a 12x16 paper. So I poured it into a
rectangular, shoe box size plastic container and had 4-5 kids at a time
blow on one end. Then we'd put paper over it and soak up the bubbles at
one end and turn it over and blow then print the bubbles on the other
I will never do that again and neither will they. They looked beautiful
but the kids sucked up soap sometimes and had splatters all over their
I'd love to know what I did wrong too.
