Bubble Wands

Children are often surprised when they realize they can do a craft project to make their own bubble wand.  A basic bubble wand can made from a stick with any type of loop on top.  Use any materials you have on hand, or try one of these ideas.  Once the children have seen the options, let them experiment with the craft supplies to make their own wands.

  • A 12 inch piece of coat hanger with 10 inch piece of string tied in a loop on one end.
  • Cut the center out of a plastic lid (yogurt or margarine container) and thumb tack it to a wooden chopstick.
  • Cut the top and bottom off a can of tuna, creating a 1 inch tube.  Check for sharp edges before letting the children have it.  Put the bubble solution in a pie plate to make it easy to dip the can.
  • Buy a set of 10 inch bubble wands and keep them from year to year.
  • boy with pipe cleaner bubble wandUse pipe cleaners.  Make a small loop with one pipe cleaner.  Or use two pipe cleaners, one for the loop and one for the handle.

 

Here are some ideas sent in by our visitors.

  • "We made bubble wands using twigs found in our back yard. Have the children look for pine twigs that have recently fallen (flexibility is the key). Wrap the twig tightly with yarn starting from about 1/3 of the way up and wrapping to the tip. Bring the tip around to your starting point, making a circle, and tie it down by wrapping around where the twig crosses itself. The longer the twig, the bigger the circle, the larger the bubbles. Use any of the bubble recipes and enjoy. We used this as a childrens birthday party craft (for older children or adult assistance for younger children) and found it a nice way to bring all the kids together on a sunny day."
  • "At our preschool I purchased fly swatters for the children to use as bubble wands. Even the toddlers have great success making millions of bubbles."
  • "Use a fairly rigid drinking straw, the fancy reusable ones work best. (You want straws with a fairly small diameter hole.) Have the child insert both ends of a 12" length of chenille into one end of the straw and form the loop into a 2-3" circle. You can make 20 - 50 bubbles from one dip of bubble mix!"
  • "Those little green baskets that strawberries come in make excellent bubble blowing tools. You can't blow very big bubbles, but kids can make lots and lots of little bubbles. Plus, it's recycling!"
  • "We had a lot of fun using plastic cookie cutters to blow bubbles. My daughter is fascinated by Count Von Count on Sesame Street, so we used big and small numbers. We tried lots of bubble solutions and had a blast in the back yard."
  • Use a small Styrofoam cup, wrap a piece of old worn out towel ( or perhaps a few layers of cheesecloth?) around the top and secure with a rubber band. Poke a small hole near the bottom and insert a straw, making sure it is in tight so no air will escape through the hole. Dip the top in the bubble solution and scrape off excess. Then blow! This will make a long snake-like formation of bubbles that will stay connected as long as the bubble solution lasts!

No Wands Needed

Here's an interesting idea for blowing bubbles sent in by one of our visitors.

"After watching the clowns at the circus make bubbles with their hands, my son and I went home and tried it. It took a little practice, but now my 5 year old child does it with ease. You dip your hands in the bubble solution (shampoo in the bath is the cleanest) lock your two thumbs then slowly spread them to make a circle. Blow gentle and you will get massive bubbles."
