One afternoon, Kirsten stretched herself on the floor in the kitchen to continue reading her book.
“Kirsten! Kirsten!” Eli yelled as he rushed into the kitchen. He instantly plopped himself on the floor beside his sister and said, “Look what I got!”
Kirsten slammed her book shut and stared excitedly at what Eli had placed on the floor. “Bubble wrap!!” She exclaimed.
“Yeah! And mom said we could have it and pop as many bubbles as we want!” Eli shouted.
Kirsten got up and said, “Well, let’s get started on popping those bubbles!”
They sat on the couch so they would be more comfortable while they popped all of those bubbles. *POP! POP!* Kirsten popped two bubbles.
Eli leaned over and said, as he reached for the bubble wrap, “Okay, my turn now!”
“Eli! We said four bubbles per turn! I let you pop an extra one on your last turn, and I’ve only popped two. It’s still my turn!” Kirsten protested.
“What are you two doing?” Jenna asked. Kirsten and Eli hadn’t even noticed she was sitting there!
“We’re popping some bubble wrap!” Kirsten said with a smile. “Oh, I’ve never done that before.” Jenna said.
Kirsten did a very dramatic gasp, her mouth and eyes slowly widening.
“YOU’VE NEVER POPPED BUBBLE WRAP?!” Eli and Kirsten yelled in unison.
“Okay, give it to her! She HAS to experience this!” Eli demanded. “You’re right!” Kirsten agreed and handed her the sheet of bubble wrap.
Eli and Kirsten watched anxiously as Jenna held up the bubble wrap. They couldn’t wait for her to pop a bubble!
Then there was a *POP!* and then a *SNAP!*
Jenna slowly turned her head towards her siblings, her smile widening. “Okay, that is really fun!” Jenna exclaimed.
“YES! She likes it!” Eli yelled, raising his hand in the air.
So they spent a while taking turns popping bubbles together until there were none left 🙂
