My toddler's face lights up whenever bubbles are involved. Washing hands, bath time and best of all blowing his own. You can buy some pots of bubble mixture with wands but it's lots of fun to make your own big bubble wands.

Time: 5 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
2 straws
1 pipe cleaner
1 small piece of string

Just a few simple materials are needed to make this bubble wand


Method
Insert one end of the pipe cleaner into the top of the first straw. This is fiddly for little fingers but great for improving fine motor skills.

Insert the other end of the pipe cleaner into the second straw.

Tie the two straws together near the pipe cleaner end.

Try making a heart shape


It's as simple as that and your big bubble wands are ready to use. You could even try bending the pipe cleaner to make a different shape like a heart.
