I love bubbles they stay some kind of magic to me. I was blowing them one day in the garden during a semi photoshoot with my boyfriend. Than my mom came with this awesome idea, to make my own bubble wands form wire. I loved it and soon the rest of the afternoon was gone at making bubble wands :)
this is a nice project for all ages, blowing bubbles isn't immature at all ;)

Step 4: Tips and Trics

-if your wands are to big for your tube you can fill a plate with soap water, to dip your sticks.

- you can make your own soap water by mixing some liquid soap with water.

- I saw on the Internet when I was looking of there already was a tutorial like this one, that someone els used small pipe cleaners so it soaks more liquid so you can blow more bubbles. I didn't tried this myself.
