Our family started Steveston Bubbles as we found that when we went to a local park to play with our giant bubble wands, we usually attracted a crowd. The interesting part was that this didn’t just attract children- it drew in older adults, younger people, families and single people out for walks with their dogs. We realized that this was a way of connecting with people in our community and there were no barriers to participation- language, age and ability is not an issue when you are playing with bubbles! With the grant funds, we created an instagram account @stevestonbubbles, had a small lawn sign made that we could set up at events, created postcards to hand out with the QR code for our page, a bubble recipe and details about NSGs, and we bought lots of supplies to make our own bubble juice. We planned to do this several times over the summer and found that people were really excited about our project. We asked local businesses for some donations to build online engagement and we had some giveaways on our page. We also asked people to tag us in photos so we could create an online gallery and give away a prize at the end of our project. One thing to think about with projects like this is that we had to be more aware of weather and we would post on instagram when we would meet up. We aimed for once a week while supplies lasted. It really was such a special project and we found that people do really want to find ways to connect and this was the perfect opportunity to do that.
