You may think of bubbles as something for little ones, but on this scale, it's
fun for all ages.  The wands are easy & inexpensive to make.    We found
that long lengths of yarn tangled easily frustrating the younger bubble
makers.  This is the length that worked well for the older kids.  And, as you
can see, giant bubbles make for awesome pictures.

Tie to eye hooks.
Cut a 30 inch piece of yarn.
