Cut off the "neck" of a 2-liter bottle. Use the cut end (hopefully cut evenly), setting it in a pie pan of bubble stuff. Lift it out; you should see a coating up on the inside. Blow through the hole that used to have the screw cap on---and big bubbles should come out.
We made these as a by-product of wind socks (using the center section as the sock). The bottoms were used to hold white glue for pasting decorations on the wind socks.
A real use of every piece of the bottle except for the lid (which we still could have used in many ways).
When the kids (it was a co-ed camp) were finished pasting their wind sock, they took the neck end and went outside the craft cabin to blow bubbles. This was their favorite activity!!!
Mid Continent Girl Scout Council
- 35 mm film canister
- small piece of plastic canvas
- 30" plastic lanyard
- 1 pony bead
- 2 oz. bubbles
- Cut a piece of plastic canvas 5 holes wide and 12 holes long. Be sure to keep plastic mesh intact on both sides.
- Counting down six holes, cut in from each side, one hole, making a paddle shape that is 3 holes wide at one end and 5 holes wide at the other. This is the bubble wand.
- Punch a small hole in the lid of the film canister.
- Thread one end of the lanyard through this hole from outside inward.
- Thread the lanyard through the center of the 3 hole end of the plastic bubble wand.
- Bring the lanyard back up through the same hole in the lid of the canister.
- Draw both ends even and place the pony bead over both lanyard threads.
- Hot glue the pony bead to the top of the canister lid and also glue the bubble wand to the inside of the lid.
- Fill the canister with bubbles, replace the lid on the bottom and tie the ends of the lanyard together to form a necklace.
