One of our Facebook community members told us that she keeps a bubble wand up in the front of the car with her. When her daughter starts to cry or if she is getting restless, she puts the bubble wand in front of the vent for instant bubbles!!

It’s was a GENIUS tip!

A big thanks to our Facebook community for always having the best tips and ideas!!

Dip any bubble wand into a bubble solution and hold the wand in front of a fan that’s turned on.

We experimented with the angle of the fan and where to hold the bubble wand, but we realized that the MOST bubbles were produced when we tilted the fan up towards the ceiling and put the bubble wand towards the base of the fan.

Let kids figure out the best angle for the fan and the best place to hold the bubble wand as an extra experiment, too!

Tip: we found that a bubble wand with multiple holes worked best!
