Make your own bubble wands out of pipe cleaners
All kids love bubbles, and it seems they are everywhere all summer long. I love bubbles too, but I hate those cheap, plastic bubble wands that come with them. They get lost so easily and are often so short that they get dropped into the bottle and are hard to retrieve. Then you’ve got the younger kids who have a hard time just using the wands — they don’t hold a lot of liquid and by the time you dip the wand and get it to your mouth to blow, the film might have popped and there’s nothing there to make a bubble.
The solution is good old pipe cleaners (a.k.a. chenille stems). Just twist a loop in the end of a pipe cleaner and you’ve got an instant bubble wand that’s cheap, easy to hold, long enough to not fall in the bottle, and best of all — holds so much liquid you won’t believe how many bubbles you can blow without having to re-dip! You can even bend the loop into fun shapes for extra cuteness.
