Today I’m going to show you how to make DIY bubble wands for your Summer Camp kids! What I love about this, it’s such an easy project for the kids to work on and have fun together with after. Plus the best part, you only need a couple supplies to make them!
After the kids are done, you can either have them make their own bubbles or create a bubble station. I have directions to make your own bubbles at the end of the post or you can purchase already made bubbles.
Let’s get started!
DIY Bubble Wands Supplies:
- 6mm Darice Chenille Stems
- Darice Faceted Plastic Beads
- Darice Acrylic Spaghetti Beads
- Other Assorted Plastic Beads
- Bubble Solution
Step 1. Have the kids place the two ends of a pipe cleaner together and twist the bottoms together, leaving the top in whatever shape they want.
I really liked the striped pattern on these pipe cleaners.
Step 2. Now it’s time to add their beads! I would have a TON of bead options available for the kids to pick from. They can get pretty creative with their bead choices.
Step 3. Once their done adding their beads make sure to bend the wire over as best as you can to keep the beads from falling off. You might need to help them with this step if they are younger children. If you have camp helpers this is a good part to have them assist the kids with.
Now the kids can go out and have some fun with bubbles! Make sure to have lots of Bubble Wand examples on the tables to give the kids ideas.
They will be so excited to play with their DIY bubble wands once they’re finished.
- 2 cups very warm water
- ¾ cup Dawn dishwashing detergent
