You and your child can send clouds of tiny bubbles skyward with this quick trick.


What you'll need

  • Drinking straws
  • Tape
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Light corn syrup (or glycerin)

How to make it

  1. Instead of a traditional bubble wand, use a number of drinking straws bound together with a few pieces of tape.

  2. Dip one end of the bundle into a shallow dish of bubble solution (you can make your own by combining 1 cup of water with 1/3 cup of Dawn or Joy dishwashing liquid and 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup or glycerin), then blow through the straws, being careful not to let the solution run down the straws to your mouth.

  3. The cluster of straws will produce scores of diminutive bubbles.
