How to Make Heart Shaped Bubble Wand

Fun Science Project : We are back with one more bubble wands DIY and it is Valentine’s Day special! Learn to make a heart-shaped bubble wand and express your love to kids. They can also learn some bubble physics with fun.

How to make heart shaped bubble wands and some fun bubbles science for kids

We love making bubble wands and blow a dozens of bubble in the air. I play with my two little girls in our backyard. This time we decided to make a heart shaped bubble wand.

Suitable For

My niece aged 3 loves to play with bubbles. She loves it since I met her first when she was 1 year old. So I can guarantee you that age is not a barrier to enjoy playing bubbles.

Babies will look at them and try to touch them but preschooler and KG kids will learn how to make it and how it works.  Older kids will make their own and will experiment on several aspects.

Make sure to ask them the shape of the bubble once the wand is ready and before they blow they must predict.

How to make a Heart Shaped Bubble Wand

Things required

  • scissors
  • chopsticks
  • 6mm pipe cleaners (also called chenille stems)

Following two items are optional

  • Pony beads – Solid white and transparent red
  • tape (suiting color)

Materials to make heart shaped bubble wands

Needless to say that I did two wands and I am sure most of you who visit my page regularly will know the reason. For the first time readers, I will tell you. I have two angels aged 6 and 4 and hence I always make 2 wherever possible to allow both to have fun individually. It does not take more than a minute or two to complete the work provided you have all the things ready on your desk. 

Adding pony beads and a chopstick handle

I took the pipe cleaner and made a loop, twisted and created an oval with 2 inches left on the ends. To make it look decorative I used pony beads and threaded them. Tied the pipe cleaner end to the chopstick and made it the handle.

Adding tape to reinforce the handle

Additionally, I wrapped red tape to the chopstick to ensure grip and tighten the pipe cleaner in its place.

DIY Heart Bubble Wands

I have tried making it without tapes before and there won’t be any difference in the performance. Only for little kids, this will provide a softer grip. Finally, by bending the oval I made it look like a heart-shaped cleaner. Now, I did the second wand following the same steps.

Now, you can ask kids about how they will work, what will be the shape of the heart-shaped bubble wand, etc. Let them guess and make some assumptions before you actually blow them.

Then allow them to check the results !

Fun Bubble Science Facts

Check Easter egg-shaped bubble wand to understand the scientific fact about bubbles and it’s working.

Pritika knows that the shape will remain round as she has tried with different shaped wands before. But this time she tried with different breath pattern and observed the bubble size. The slow breath will form big bubbles. The fast breath will create many bubbles but small ones.

She attempted slowly to look at the shape of the bubble inside the wand. She managed to make it look heart-shaped inside the wand.

When she released slowly it looked around on one plane and heart shaped on the other plane.

Pritika learned science in a fun way and changed the variables to modify the result into different size and shape.
