DIY Upcycled Bubble Blowers

Nothing beats blowing bubbles in the backyard with the kids! It's a quintessential summertime activity! We recently one-upped our traditional bubble blowing thanks to a brilliant idea from my mom (Hi, mom!!) by creating these super simple DIY upcycled bubble blowers for kids.

How to Recycled Water Balloon Adapters into DIY Bubble Blowers for Kids

You will need only two things for to make these DIY upcycled bubble blowers:

After enjoying our first water balloon fight using the Bunch O Balloons pack, I wondered what I could do with the leftover adapters. It seemed like such a waste to just throw them out. Plus, at this rate, I will collect so many of them by the time summer officially arrives. So my mom suggested trying to turn them into bubble blowers...and they totally work!

Remove any broken balloons attached to the end of the adapters, if applicable. If your pack came with the nozzle looking hose adapter, then you can screw it on, but not all of our packs have come with this adapter. Don't worry, the bubble blowers work perfectly fine without (as you will see in my video at the bottom of this post).

Simple dip the ends into the bubble solution and blow!

Depending on where you place your fingers on the adapters, you can either blow billions of teeny tiny bubbles, like in the above photos, or you can make bubble snakes. Just blow slowly or hold your fingers closer to the ends of the adapters near the bubbles. My boys loved trying to catch the bubble snakes!
