Want to make something special to celebrate Independence Day
next weekend? These special bubble wands are sure to tickle
kids (and grown-ups) of all ages!
Star-Shaped Bubble Wand
An easy make-ahead that will entertain the kids while they’re waiting for the fireworks to begin. You'll find this crafty idea in our book, Seasons for Sharing.
40-inch length of 20-gauge wire
star-shaped cookie cutter
enamel spray paint
Fold wire in half, then beginning at one point of the star cookie cutter, bend the wire around the cutter to form the star shape. When the wire is completely covering the cookie cutter, twist to secure. Straighten the ends of the remaining wire and cut with wire cutters to make both ends even in length. Place the trimmed ends into the chuck on an electric drill and tighten the chuck. Hold the wire tightly and rotate the drill until the wire is completely twisted and tight. Coat bubble wand with spray paint; let dry.
Fill a painted pail with bubble wands and flags held in place with bright marbles.
A colorful picnic centerpiece until they’re ready to be put to use!
