Use coloured bubbles outdoors and have the kids wear older clothing.

Homemade Bubble Wands

Try the following items to create fun bubble wands: Bend chenille stems into fun shapes and attach to a stick to create a wand. Or help kids shape giant wands with metal coat hangers. You can get really creative by grabbing the following items from your kitchen: a slotted spoon, funnels, mason jar lid rings, cookie cutters, or a cocktail strainer.

Pour bubble solution into a tray for easy dipping and have fun!
