Bubbles {Camping 2013}

After a successful tent nap the kids were ready for more activities so we brought out the crafts. In an attempt to find a craft that was appropriate for small children and older kids I settled on beaded bubble wands. I found this tutorial from Barista Kids helpful. I also used the bubble recipe they provided as some examples I looked at said store bought bubbles might not be stiff enough for these bubble wands.

For the little kids I shaped the wand (circle, heart, etc) then allowed them to put on beads. Once they were done I secured the end. For the older kids I just gave them 12 inches of wire and let them create their wand shape and add the beads. 

It was a hit! The little kids loved blowing bubbles and the older kids had fun experimenting with different wand shapes.

Nora slept through the craft time but I made her a bubble wand and she had fun blowing bubbles when she woke up.
