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.
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.
How to make a Heart Shaped Bubble Wand
- 6mm pipe cleaners (also called chenille stems)
Following two items are optional
- Pony beads – Solid white and transparent red
- tape (suiting color)
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.
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.
Additionally, I wrapped red tape to the chopstick to ensure grip and tighten the pipe cleaner in its place.
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 !
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.
