I am so excited to share a creative and fun way to make your own bubble wand. Teacher Beth, the wonderful StrongStart Educator from Second Street Community School made a video about these bubble wands.


Click on this link for Blowing bubbles with Teacher Beth.

Supplies to make this special bubble wand:

Two sticks or dowels ( purchased dowels from Dollarama – package of 6)

Two eye hooks – attach to the end of the dowel to tie the strings through.

One metal washer – to use as a weight




I hope you try making this bubble wand and blow some giant bubbles!
