You can use bubble solution purchased from the store, or make your own using any of the recipes you can find online. We tried several… and have to admit… the store-bought version works best of all!
NOW… to make the Wikki Bubble Wands! An easy way is to use a spoon…plastic or household…to hold your Wikki bubble shape. So, you’ll want to hold the spoon with your thumb in the spoon bowl and wrap the Wikkies around the straight end of the spoon, with the shape sticking out. See pictures.
Dip the Wikki shape into the bubble solution…and wave it high in the air!
Did you have a triangular bubble? A square bubble? Does it matter if you wave the spoon sideways…or straight up in the air? What shape is your bubble?
What are bubbles, anyway? Bubbles are pockets of air inside the thin skin created by the soap mixture. When something sharp and dry touches the bubble, it pokes a hole in the bubble’s skin and all the air goes out of it. And the bubble disappears! It pops!
By now you’ve probably noticed that no matter what shape your bubble wand is…the bubble looks round when it comes out. That is because bubbles always try to take up the least amount of space and hold the most air it possibly can…so it doesn’t like corners!
But don’t stop trying…just watch closely to see the original shape, before the bubble turns into a circle!
Happy Bubble Blowing!
