Bubble Theme Party: Activities
11. Tag, You’re It!
Play this game as you would play a regular game of tag. The twist is to give the player who’s “it” a battery-operated bubble blower. They will use this to tag the other players.
12. Colorful Bubble Art
Pour bubble mixtures into bowls; then add food coloring to each bowl. Give each guest a straw to blow air into the mixture and create bubbles. Set a white piece of paper over the top of the bowl to create a colorful image. Move from bowl to bowl until each guest has all the wanted colors on his or her page.
13. Blow Race
Set up a starting line and a finish line. Each guest must begin by blowing a bubble. They then must use air from their mouth to keep the bubble afloat and get to the finish line. Don’t pop the bubble!
14. Dodge That Bubble
This game is similar to dodgeball but with bubbles. Guests should separate into two teams and blow bubbles at each other. Once a bubble hits a player, he or she must sit out. The side with the most remaining players is the winning team.
15. Bubble Drift
Have some party guests hold up hula-hoops while other guests try to blow bubbles through the hoops. Increase the distance for a more difficult challenge.
16. Don’t Break the Bubble
Have guests blow bubbles and take turns catching them on bubble wands. The challenge is to not break the bubbles.
17. Frozen Bubbles
Blow some bubbles and catch them on a wand or plate. Freeze them before they pop and amaze guests with the neat effects of the frozen bubbles.
18. Battle the Bubbles
19. Big Bubble Blow
Keep measuring tape close by and see who can create the biggest bubble without popping it.
20. Keep the Bubbles Afloat
Have guests blow a bunch of bubbles. Challenge them to keep the bubbles in the air for as long as they are able just by blowing.
21. Bubbles, Bubbles, and More Bubbles
Challenge guests to see who can blow the most bubbles in a given time frame. This is harder than it seems because the bubbles won’t form if they try to blow too fast.
22. Don’t Use Your Hands!
For this activity, guests should try to pop massive amounts of bubbles without using their hands. Kids especially will love jumping and using karate kicks to break the bubbles.
23. Bubble Pool of Fun
Fill a kiddie pool with tons of bubble liquid. Allow guests to take turns stomping around in the pool creating bubbles and foam. Use caution with this activity. The bubbles can be slippery, and the liquid burns if it gets into your eyes.
Bubble Theme Party: Invitations
24. Balloon Invitations
Blow up balloons and write information such as the date, time, and purpose of the gathering with a marker. Then deflate the balloons and mail them in envelopes to guests. Include instructions to blow up the balloon to read the invitation message.
25. Message in a Bubble Bottle
Buy small bottles of bubbles for each guest you wish to invite. You’ll only need the empty bottle to start creating your invites; pour the contents into a larger container to save for later bubble blowing. Print out little information sheets and roll them to place into each empty bubble bottle for a unique invitation.
26. Bubble Invites
Purchase small bottles of bubbles for each guest. Instead of emptying the contents, unwrap the label. Then wrap the new invitation label around the bottle. This way, guests will get to keep the bubble bottles for future use!
27. Bubble Invitation Cards
If you’re looking for a more traditional bubble themed invitation, you could always use circular invitation cards. If you can’t find invitation card that are circular in shape, you could easily just but a generic invitation card and cut them into circles yourself. I suggest selecting cute pastel colored invitation cards.

28. Cake Bubbles
Create a cake using a circular cake pan. Then, use icing to make the cake look like a bubble. Create a shadow effect with different blues and add a reflective spot of light. You could also make cupcakes for each guest and make each one look like smaller individual bubbles.

Use circular Jello molds to create translucent bubble treats!

Cut fruits and vegetables into circular slices. Try it with bananas, cucumbers, or any other healthy alternatives. Provide various dips to make the fruits and veggies even more delectable.
33. Pasta Salad
Pasta salad is always a popular side dish to add to your menus at parties. Use pasta wheels instead of regular pasta to play off of the party’s bubble theme.
34. Cheese and Crackers
This is another popular menu item for gatherings. Use round crackers and purchase cheese balls that resemble the circular shape of bubbles.
35. Round Out Foods
Try to make any other foods you wish to have into circle shapes. For example, if you plan on having sandwiches, use a round cookie cutter to make circle crusts. Guests will notice all of the effort and detail, which will give your menu and party a greater impact.
