Giant Bubble


  • String
  • Two drinking straws
  • Bubble solution
  • Large, flat baking pan


  1. Thread a length of string through two straws.
  2. Tie the ends together to make a loop.
  3. Leave as much slack string between the straws as you like, depending on the size of bubble you want.
  4. Pour bubble solution into a large, shallow baking pan.
  5. Hold one straw in each hand, leaving the string hanging slack between them.
  6. Dip the straw-and-string loop into the bubble solution, then lift it out slowly, taking care not to break the film of bubble solution.
  7. Pull the straws apart until the string is taut, then hold the bubble film in front of a fan or the wind and watch a giant bubble take shape!
