This weekend will be such fun with Easter Egg Hunts, family picnics, and kids playing outdoors to celebrate the holiday. If you are looking for an idea to keep the kids creative, try these bubble wands that I made for Craft TV. They are super easy, since all you need are shrink plastic sheets, scissors, and some permanent markers. Here is the pattern that you can enlarge to a full size sheet when you print it out. Let the kids watch as you place the cut-outs on a cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees in an oven. I still get a kick out of watching the plastic curl up, shrink, and then lay flat on the sheet when it's done. Too cool! The kids can use markers to write their names or draw designs on the plastic before you shrink it.
BUBBLES RECIPE: Mix 5 cups water, 2 cups liquid dishwashing soap and 1/2 cup corn syrup. Pour into colorful bowls to dunk your bubble wands into, and watch the fun begin! Happy Easter, everyone!
