Back to basics tip #23: I always have a stash of snacks in my purse. That’s how I keep my kids quiet while we are running errands. But on days when we are out and about for longer than they would like or through their lunch time or nap times I pull out my secret weapon. Bubbles.
I keep small bubble bottles in my purse. You know, the small bottles they give out at wedding receptions? I have one of those in my purse. Bubbles spare me that few more minutes to get out at the check out line without screaming kids. If needs to, place the bubble in a zip bag if you are concerned about it ever spilling.
So next time you are at a reception where they have bubbles, grab a few extra for your purse. Or you can purchase some at a craft store where they sell wedding supplies.
