Back to School Bubble Party with Palmolive

We are already in our second week back at school and my daughter has done a great job transitioning to kindergarten. She has been so excited for each day but by the end of the first week she was exhausted and looking forward to the weekend. I was also looking forward to the weekend because I was surprising her by inviting some friends over for a back to school bubble party. I planned fun with bubbles for every school subject. I knew she would enjoy seeing friends and playing with bubbles. Instead of buying traditional bubble solution I used Palmolive dish soap for all the activities. I had fun planning the party and exploring uses for soap beyond just washing dishes. Our back to school bubble party was a great way to end the summer being outside with friends!


We invited friends over for an afternoon party with activities for every school subject. The invitations were simple and let friends know to expect fun with bubbles.


The party table backdrop was made with bubble wrap and blue wavy bulletin board trim. The tables were covered with blue tablecloths and bubble wrap runners. The back to school bubble party was full of activities covering every school subject including art, history, math, P.E, recess, and science.


Mix Palmolive dish soap with gel food coloring to make paint. Then dip straws in the paint and blow to make art.


Party guests mixed their own colors in ice cube trays and had fun blowing paint bubbles on their canvases.



A pop quiz is always a surprise at school. Our back to school bubble party pop quiz had everyone talking about dish soap! Party guests had fun learning liquid soap was first patented in 1865.



A guessing jar full of mini gum balls added color to the party table. There was a wide range of guesses but no one came close to the correct answer of 679.


P.E and Recess

Both P.E. and recess were outdoor activities requiring swimsuits. Palmolive dish soap on our Slip N’ Slide and bubbles in a plastic pool added to our party fun.


The soapy Slip N’ Slide was a party favorite!


A tiny kid pool and dish soap made tons of bubbles for recess.



Our party science experiment was figuring out which shape bubble wand was best for blowing bubbles.


The party guests were creative with the sparkly pipe cleaners making their bubble wands.


With so many party activities, the fun didn’t end at our house. Each guest went home with their own Palmolive dish soap and a thank you note.


All the party supplies and Palmolive dish soap featured in this #CollectiveBias #Palmolive25Ways post were purchased from Walmart.

  1. I love how you incorporated so many school subjects into your party. I’m trying to decide if I would have more fun with that great art project or playing on the soapy slip and slide! Sadly, I would have failed your pop quiz! #client
