Giant Bubble Wand

Age: 3 and up
Time: An hour or more
Type of Activity: Arts and crafts

What do kids like even more than blowing bubbles in their drinks? Blowing giant bubbles of course! Help your kids make their own magic wands - then watch the bubbles fly free!

Materials needed:

  • 2 straws
  • A piece of heavy string or yarn about 36-48 inches long
  • Scissors
  • Bubble solution

    What to do:

    Step One: Thread the string through both straws and tie a knot at each end. This will form a rectangular wand.

    Step Two: Put a straw in each hand and lower them into your bubble solution.

    Step Three: Bring the straws together in the solution, making sure the entire wand is submerged.

    Step Four: Lift the wand upward, through the air. As you raise the straws up, move your hands away from each other.

    Step Five: Now move your hands together to let your bubble fly free!
