Huge bubble magic

  Inspired by a post over at Childhood Magic the other day, I headed to the hardware store to get what I needed to make these wonderful bubble wands.
The wands are so easy to make, check Childhood Magic (update; please check comments section for a brief description of how to make the wands, also I am hoping to find time this summer to do another post with pictures on how to make them, since the one on Childhood magic is no longer online)
The bubbles they produce are magnificent.
I think I was almost as excited as the children, truly magical!!
Keenan was able to make little bubble, but mostly he enjoyed to pop them,
Kaleena however really got the hang of it after a few tries.


Very happy indeed with her new wand
Thanks again for the inspiration Ariella.

Thanks for stopping in,
and have wonderful day!!


  1. Wow! The bubbles are fantastic! So glad you made the wands--- so much fun isn't it???! Really love these photos!

  2. Your bubbles are amazing too!!!
    I love your blog :)

  3. Incredible!!! Looks like loads of fun. I'm off to check out the links and work out how to make. Thanks for sharing :-)

  4. Hi,
    I would love to do the bubbles with my three little ones, but see the childhood magic page is closed. Would you be able to remember how to make the bubble solution?

  5. someone asked about the bubble solution, since childhood magic has closed down the page, I used simply dish soap mixed with water, I just tried out the consistency till I had it right, but as I remember I used a whole bottle of seven generation mixed with perhaps a gallon of water or a bit less, better to start less water, as you can always add more if needed.
    If anyone needs help with the wands let me know:)

  6. Your photos are amazing!!! i saw the post over at Childhood Magic, and have been wanting to try these!! Now i am even more inspired, your photos are pure magic! LOVE this!!

  7. Chistina you are full of creativity and good ideas. everything it's so beautiful and real.
    kisses and hugs for everybody.

  8. Hi,
    I was wondering if you know another site to find the directions for huge bubbles, since Childhood Magic is no longer blogging. I was wanting to do these for my son's birthday party, but have no clue how to get started. They look amazing!

  9. You will need; two wooden dowels, two eye hooks, a metal washer to use as a weight (can be found in hardware store) and cotton cord(must be cotton)
    Screw by hand one eye hook into each dowel. Cut two pieces of cotton string. One about a third of the other, the length depending on the size of bubbles you want to make. Tie the shortest piece onto both eye hooks. Slide the washer onto the longest piece, to hang loosely in the middle and tie the ends onto the eye hook, you will have two knots on each eye hook.
    That's it! Mix dish soap and water in a bucket and enjoy!
    Hope this helps,

  10. Thank you so much for the directions! One more question, what kind of cotton sting? A thick string or thin?
    Take care,

  11. Nikki,
    Use a cotton cord that you might use for a clothesline, perhaps 1/4-1/2 inch or so...

  12. Thank you! I cannot wait to try these out.

  13. wow these are amazing, Im going to make them for my sons party and have them take them home at the end. what did you use to pour the bubble solution into ?

  14. Katie,
    I put the bubble solution into a plain old bucket, the solution will fill up just a few inches of the bucket bottom.

  15. Were having a "Bubbles at the Park" play date tomorrow! This is perfect!!!

  16. Really really cool pictures of big bubbles in action. LOVE IT! You have been pinned :)

    Also, check out beeboo Big Bubble Mix, and the beeboo Pro Wand (both on amazon) if you want to make big bubbles but don't want to make the stuff yourself. Total cost for both is only around $20.
