What’s summer without bubbles? I don’t know about you but we keep a huge bottle of bubbles around for fun anytime. It’s proven to be quite useful since most of the time the small bottles of bubbles end up upside down on our sidewalk and lawn. Little hands just haven’t figured out how to steady a bottle in their hand and blow bubbles at the same time.
We’ve become addicted to one bubble maker in particular from a popular clothing store however it can be a bit pricey. So we’ve come up with an inexpensive solution to get the same results… multiple tiny bubbles at one time!
Not only is this bubble maker super easy to make, it uses items that were in my cupboard already. Double bonus for not having to buy anything. So grab some straws, a few pieces of tape, and your bubbles and start having fun.
DIY Multi Bubble Maker
What you’ll need:
- a handful of straws
- a shallow dish or container for bubbles
- bubble solution
What you do:
1. Grab the straws in your fist and make sure they’re evenly level on both ends.
2. Place tape on one end to secure straws together.
3. Tape the opposite end for further support. Try not to use your husband’s expensive panting tape because your clear tape wasn’t showing up well in pictures.
4. Pour bubble solution into shallow dish and lightly dip bubble maker in.
5. Start blowing bubbles! Try not to put your mouth over the end of the bubble maker, instead brush your lips slightly on the end of the bubble maker and blow.
Bad photo but below is the only one I got of the bubble maker in action since my son refused to play along (you know… just cause I had a camera in my hand). The bubble maker not only makes lots of tiny bubbles but can also make super big bubbles as well if you get lucky!
