Homemade Bubble Wand

I saw this cute, easy idea over here.
Homemade bubble wands. And it is perfect timing too, because there has been more kids around here than store bought wands...and that is not a good thing.

All you need are beads, pliers and wire. I found my wire in the hardward department of Walmart.

Twist the wire into circle as shown above. Then simply

sting the beads onto both wires at the same time.

After the beading is complete, spiral the ends of the wires, to keep the beads in place and to prevent the wire from poking the kids.

Then send the whole bunch of kids outdoors to enjoy their creations.

You can even invite the neighbors over, since the mess is now outside!
