DIY: Bubble Wands

The thing about bubbles is that they bring out the kid in all of us, and making your own wands and solution can make it even more enjoyable.



  • Pipe cleaners
  • 6-pack yokes

*For solution*

  • 1 gallon Water
  • 2/3 cup Dawn dish soap
  • 1 T. Light Caro Syrup
  • <Let set for 8 hours before using>



Fold over the 6-pack yoke/holder and find the smaller triangle shaped holes


Thread a pipe cleaner thru both holes and center in the middle


Starting near the base, twist the pipe cleaners together tightly


Twist the pipe cleaner together until you get to the end


Make some pipe cleaner wands too!  We made all different shapes.  We also gave them about a 1-2 inch “handle” for little hands to maneuver better


Believe it or not, this gnarly looking wand that my boys concocted was the biggest bubble maker of them all.


Have fun!
