Some bubble wands are better bubble blowers than other bubble wands. If you search on the Internet for bubble wands, you will find many commercial offerings that claim to produce “giant” and “super” bubbles. But you can make great wands for big bubbles at home. See how you can make homemade giant soap bubbles.
How to Make Giant Bubbles
BubbleThing: Big Bubble Instant Powder Refill Mix(Makes 5.4 Gallons)
In order to make giant bubbles, you need to make a really big wand with string. Slide two straws onto a long string before you tie the loop. The straws can be used for handles when dipping and for pulling the loop through the air to “blow” the bubble. Be warned, however, the larger the string loop, the messier the blowing. String wands get stickier and wetter the larger they are.
You can make a great bubble wand for blowing large bubbles from two pieces of 8½ inch by 11inch paper. For a super “how to” for this wand, including pictures, visit Bubble Town.
You will find that this bubble tube creates bigger bubbles than regular bubble wands (made of plastic) because the paper allows the bubble solution to be absorbed. By absorbing the solution, the bubble tube actually has some solution stored that is slowly drawn into the bubble as you blow.
Another reason why the tube produces a better bubble blower is its funnel shape. When you blow into a regular bubble wand, the speed of your breath onto the thin layer of bubble solution forces the bubble to separate from the wand quickly. The same is even true if you blow through a straw. The air you blow travels straight to the bubble solution at one speed.
Using the bubble tube, the air you blow spreads out as it travels from the top of the tube to the bottom. Therefore, the air is moving more slowly when it reaches the bubble solution creating a larger, sturdier, more slowly formed bubble.
