Bubble Wands

These bubble wands will work for a variety of bubble-blowers from the youngest toddlers to the adults who love them. Bubbles are cheap, easy entertainment that inspire wonder and a sense of playfulness. Start out with a good, homemade bubble solution (or buy the commercial version if you must). If you don't want to negate the frugality of bubbles, consider making some of these bubble wands with items you probably already have sitting around in your house.

1. Take a Look Around the House for Bubble Wands in Hiding

 

These diamonds in the rough will have handles or holes or be easily adaptable. Cut the bottom out of a foam coozie and you've got a great bubble blower. One end will be soaked in bubble solution and the other will fit perfectly around your toddler's mouth. Toddlers often have problems aiming their breath at those tiny, plastic bubble wands included in bottles of solution, so bubble blowers that remove that obstacle are a plus. The cans that frozen juice concentrate come in can be modified in the same way. Get creative as you look around the house. Try these:

  • a slotted spoon
  • a bamboo carpet beater
  • funnels
  • fly swatters
  • a potato ricer
  • 6-pack rings
  • a silicone steaming basket
  • mason jar lid rings
  • cookie cutters
  • a cocktail strainer
