Our kids have been going absolutely “Ga Ga” over perler beads recently!! They have been creating all sorts of unique designs, patterns and crafts! Weekly trips to Michaels have been made just to stock up on colors that we have run out of! Seriously, its been so fun to watch the kids get creative. Today we are creating fun Perler Bead Bubble Wands….

How to make Perler Bead Bubble Wands:
Too busy to make this right away?! Pin it for later! Pin this project to your favorite craft board on Pinterest and it’ll be waiting for you when you’re ready.

Step 1: place large perler beads at the top of the board and create handles using smaller perler beads. You don’t need these fancy bubble wand perler beads to create a bubble wand! Simply form an open square and handle with regular perler beads to make your own bubble wand variations.
Step 2: Cover the beads with wax paper and iron until the holes in the beads just start to melt and disappear. Repeat on the other side.
Step 3: blow bubbles!!! We created our own bubble mixture with dish soap and warm water.
