These giant bubble wands are easy to make with just a few items you can find at your local hardware store. Older kids can help tie on the string, and younger kids can help measure out how much string to use. The kids may even enjoy decorating these giant bubble wands with paint, glitter glue, or decorative duct tape. This would be a great weekend project for families to do together!
Here’s a step by step video tutorial and handy supply list for how to make giant bubble wands!
To make your own giant bubble wand, you will need:

In just a few minutes, the wands can be assembled and ready for an afternoon (or entire season) of bubble making fun!

A few years ago, I asked my kids to list some of their all-time favorite activities for Summer, and these giant bubble wands are always at the top of the list. I love how just a few inexpensive items from the local hardware store and some homemade bubble solution can keep them happily entertained for long periods of time. Lots of smiles and plenty of happy childhood memories in the making!
Tip — Wear play clothes in case things get messy, and be sure to review proper bubble making etiquette and safety (don’t swing the wands or make bubbles near someone’s face).
