These homemade bubble wands are perfect for fun in the sun!

This activity is appropriate for:
pre-k - 1st grade / 4 - 6 years

You will need:

    (for the wands)
  • Plastic drinking straw
  • Plastic six-pack holder
  • Wooden stick (about 10 inches long)
  • Lightweight rope
  • Tape
    (for the bubble solution)
  • ½ cup dishwashing soap
  • 1½ cups water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Large bowl or pan


  • Six-At-Once Bubble Wand
  1. Use tape to attach a plastic six-pack holder to the end of a drinking straw. (You can also cut the six-pack holder into a few smaller pieces to create 4- or 2-ring wands.)
  2. Have students dip the rings into the bubble solution, then pull them out and wave the wand around to create lots of bubbles!
  • Rope Wand
  1. Use tape to attach a short length of lightweight rope to the wooden stick. Attach the rope so that it forms a loop at the end of the stick.
  2. Have students dip the rope into the bubble solution.
  3. Students run to open up the loop…and create giant-size bubbles!
  • Bubble Solution
  1. Pour the dish soap into a large bowl or pan.
  2. Add the water and sugar to the bowl. Gently stir the mixture.
  3. Once the ingredients are mixed, the solution is ready to use!
