Blowing Bubbles with DIY Bubble Shooter Wand

This play is really satisfying for children as they make lots of bubbles with each breath.

The action needed for creating bubbles with the bubble shooter is always exhaling and never inhaling.  This will keep bubble solution out of kids’ mouths.  <–But just in case, always use a non-toxic bubble solution that is taste-safe.

It is amazing how quickly they learn the proper coordination to get just the right amount of bubble solution into the shooter wand.

What fun!
