Beaded Bubble Wands are fun to make.

Beaded Bubble Wands

Here’s a fun summer art project by Jean Van't Hul. Kids will love designing their own beaded bubble wands! This also makes a great party or play-date activity.  

Pipe cleaners  
Small wooden dowels (or cut a long one into sections)  
Assorted beads  
Hot glue gun  
Bubble solution

1. Twist one end of a pipe cleaner around the tip of a dowel.  

2. Thread beads along the pipe cleaner, leaving an inch or so clear. 

3. Bend the beaded pipe cleaner into a loop and twist the end around the dowel. Add a dab of glue from the hot glue gun to help hold the pipe cleaner in place.  

4. Dip the beaded bubble wand into bubble solution and wave it through the air to make magical bubbles.
