Handmade Bubble Makers

Feeling bubbly? You’re about to! This cool and crafty bubble maker from @mamamia_ig will provide hours of backyard fun and laughter. And when you’re covered in popped bubbles at the end of play, Wet Ones will be there to wipe them away!

Here’s what you’ll need to make the bubble magic happen:

BUBBLE SOLUTION:

  • 1/5 gallon hot water (slightly more than 3 cups)
  • 1 cup liquid dish soap
  • 4 tbsp. glycerin

BUBBLE WAND:

  • 2 long sticks
  • One 3-foot-long string
  • One 1.5-foot-long string
  • Pipe cleaners (for smaller wands)

STEP ONE

Gently mix the bubble solution ingredients together. If things get a bit messy, no worries! Wet Ones is always there to get those hands clean.

STEP TWO

Let the solution sit overnight. The longer you leave the mixture, the better to make long-lasting, mega-strong bubbles!

Time to make the bubble wand!

STEP ONE

Knot each end of the 3-foot-long string to the top of each stick.

STEP TWO

Knot the shorter string to the long string to make a semicircle shape facing down.

STEP THREE

Dunk it in the bubbles and take off running!

For smaller bubble wands:

STEP ONE

Twist pipe cleaners together to form your bubble shape and handle.

STEP TWO

Dunk the shape in the bubbles, then start blowing. When you're done catching bubbles, grab some Wet Ones to wipe off the soapy suds from your hands.
