These pics are fairly self explanatory. A few weeks back, the kids wanted to blow bubbles and here's me with not a batch of bubbles or bubble wand in the entire house! What in the world could be done?
I pride myself on being a resourceful gal, so I made them some, of course!
I took a wire coat hanger, straightened it out and cut the wobbly poky edges off. I took a bit of care with the wire cutters to make blunt ends and not sharp ones.
I then wrapped the center of the hanger in yarn, my knitting pals out there may see this as casting on. ;)
Then I bent to wire to make a loop, twisted it so that it would stay, and then wrapped the back ends in tape. This came off, after a while because it isn't water proof. You may wish to attach your bubble loop to a wooden stick, or wrap it in yarn, even.
The bubble mixture is a quarter cup of concentrated dish soap to 2 cups of water. Ours wasn't that great because I didn't take the time to look up the proper ratio. But it worked and the kids were thrilled for slightly longer than it took for me to set it all up!
