What You Do
Instructions for bubbles:
1. Mix all 3 ingredients together. Don't stir or shake too much.
2. Store in a sealed container. The mixture has a long shelf life -- so don't worry about it going bad.

1. Tape the holder to the straw.
2. Pour bubbles into bowl or pan.
3. Dip into bubbles, twirl around, and make lots of big bubbles!
* If you have more than one child, you can cut the plastic soda can holder into two sections, to make two wands (an easy way to avoid sibling squabbles!).
