Creative Ways to Use Cookie Cutters #6: Bubbles

Thursday, April 25th, 2013


If you are looking for creative ways to use cookie cutters, here is a great one you’ve probably never thought of–Bubbles! Today I will show you how to use a cookie cutter as a bubble blower. This activity is perfect for young children and will bring delight to their eyes.

Buy some bubble solution (or make your own) and pour it into a shallow bowl, wide enough to fit the cookie cutter. Now dip your cookie cutter into the bubble solution. Lift it up into the air, and then blow gently on the inside of the cookie cutter. You should see a bubble form and float away from the cookie cutter.

You can also use a natural breeze to blow the bubbles, as long as the wind isn’t too strong.

This fun activity works best on a humid day, maybe right after a rain. If you make your own bubble solution with glycerin, you have a higher chance of creating larger and stronger bubbles. You can find my favorite recipe for bubbles and more fun bubble activities in my free Bubbles Unit Study.
