This bubble shooter was born out of desperation.

At one time we had many bubble wands. They have since disappeared into their secret hiding places somewhere in our garden.


A bubble shooter: a brilliant mechanism combining bubbles and the act of shooting.

This Do It Yourself Bubble Shooter is so easy to make that any home without bubble wands will probably never have to buy another bubble wand again!

To make your Do It Yourself Bubble Shooter, you’ll need 2 basic supplies that you probably already have in your home: some straws and rubber bands. That’s it!

Take a bunch of straws and attach them together by wrapping them with a rubber band. If you don’t have rubber bands within easy reach, don’t worry. Just use some masking tape or sticky tape to join the straws together.

You can also cut the straws to a shorter length; this may be very useful if you don’t have many straws but have many children to entertain.

Mix up a batch of bubble solution, (we love our DIY baby bath bubble solution), and blow away.

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