Our neighbor, seven year old Monika, took a piece of grass. She tied a knot in the middle, but did not pull it tight– she left a circle the size of the tip of my pinkie. Then she double knotted the circle in place. She snapped off a leafy twig from a nearby bush, inspected the dot of clear goo coming out of the break, and applied the goo all over the tiny grass-circle. Then she put the grass-circle to her mouth and blew six little bubbles, that flew across the grass on the wind.
