How to Set up a Homemade Bubble Wand Station



  1. Gather Materials

    Collect beads in various shapes, sizes, and colors, pipe cleaners, and dowels. If doing this for a party, you can set every child up with a tray to work on and set out lots of small bowls with beads in them. That way it’s easier for kids to find just the right bead!

  2. Make your wands!

    Thread beads onto a pipe cleaner, leaving some space at one end to form a handle. You can create patterns or use random combinations of beads.

    Once the beads are threaded, twist the end of the pipe cleaner around the dowel to attach it. Make sure it’s secure so the beads don’t fall off. You can use a little hot glue to secure the pipe cleaner to the dowel.

  3. Test out your wands!

    Provide a bowl of bubble solution and encourage your kids to dip their wands and blow bubbles.

    They can experiment with different wand designs to see how they affect the size and shape of the bubbles.
