Dumbo's Bubble Blowers

Dumbo's Bubble Blowers

Dumbo loves showing off his bubble-making skills for his buddy Timothy the mouse. Kids can create their own bubble blowers from recycled bottles and then take the fun outside!

You'll need:

  • Plastic water or soda bottles, cleaned and dried with labels removed
  • Scissors
  • Duct tape, in assorted colors
  • Masking tape
  • Self-adhesive craft foam shapes
  • Stickers
  • Markers
  • Bubble solution
Instructions:

1. To start, decorate clean, dry plastic bottles. Draw a line around the bottle 4-6 inches below the mouth. Have kids decorate the bottle between the mouth and the line.

2. Encourage kids to get creative when decorating their bottles. Offer pre-cut pieces of duct and masking tape in bright circus-inspired colors. Stickers and adhesive craft foam are easy to use and mess-free. Design ideas: Use yellow and red tape to make a "Big Top" blower that looks just like a circus tent. Self-adhesive craft foam circles are fun and festive on a yellow tape background. Create a crowd of pink elephants using craft foam circles with foam hearts for ears.

3. Once bottles are decorated, turn them into bubble-blowers. Use scissors to cut-off the bottom of the bottle at the marked line -- this is a parent's job.

4. Now its time to blow bubbles! Pour bubble solution into a shallow tray (an aluminum cake pan works well) and dip the cut-end of the bottle into the bubble solution. Make bubbles by blowing gently through the mouth of the bottle.

Party Tip: These are perfect for a party. Kids can decorate their bubble-blowers and then take them home as favors. Write kids' names on their bubble-blowers to be sure no one gets them confused.
