Remember to make your BUBBLE RECIPE EARLY as it gets better with time (and use yellow or clear dish soap!)
Shaped Bubble Wands – Instructions:
1. If you use small cookie cutter shapes for your DIY bubble wands, you’ll need one pipe cleaner per bubble wand. Start by wrapping the pipe cleaner around the cookie cutter, forming the shape of a star.
When you reach the end of the shape wrap the remaining pipe cleaner section around the shape a few times to close it shut. Then the remaining excess of the pipe cleaner becomes the handle for your bubble wand.
2. Thread the bubble wand handle with gold and silver beads. When you reach the bottom of the pipe cleaner with your beads, fold the pipe cleaner end up to secure the beads in place. We like to bunch the pipe cleaner up into a little ball on the end after bending it up to help it stay sealed shut. Or just fold it over. It is a question of preference!
Now your DIY Bubble Wands are ready to play with!
Pour some bubble solution into a shallow dish, dip the pipe cleaner shape down into the solution and then blow bubbles through your bubble wand.
