New Year’s Eve Toddler Bubble Wands

| |
We truly ADORE Bubbles.. and as you know in the summer time, we are all over our easy bubble recipe (it is SOOO good) and have made many bubble wands and done many bubble activities!! But.. as I was preparing for New Year’s Eve, I thought, actually Star Bubble Wands would be a perfect New Year’s Eve Toddler craft.. look at it in two ways: whilst the grown ups have “real” bubbles, the kids get to have their own New Year’s Eve Bubbles.. or.. instead of NOISY and scary fireworks.. replace the firework fun with Toddle bubble fun. Just a perfect way to celebrate New Year’s Eve with Young Children (plus.. we had some sparkly pipecleaners left over from our Pipecleaner Christmas Trees.. so it seemed perfect to me.. teehee!). So here we have them. New Year’s Eve Toddler Bubble Wands.
Find out more about our great set of New Year’s Eve Countdown Activities for Kids! Hour by hour we provide with simple and new ideas…. 
This makes a great sensory toy for SEN Kids, as the beads give the kids somethint to focus on and fiddle with. For those SEN Kids that are sensitive to sound and struggle to process noise, the wand is a great alternative to sparklers but still sparkles bright. Why not combine it with a  torch and it will twinkle and shimmer for hours of sensory play!!! Enjoy!! And have a calm and fun filled New Year’s Eve whatever you child’s needs are.

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.
