Wire Bubble Frame
The plastic bubble wands are just a beginning to this creative process. Bubble frames can be three-dimensional or square-edged or both. No matter what the shape of the frame, the bubbles will come out spherical. Coated bell wire is best for these frames because it is easy to obtain and easy to cut. The plastic coating protects children' fingers.
Let's make it
Start by cutting the wire into 18-inch pieces. Show your children how to make a simple frame, starting with a circle with a handle. Then make frames of various shapes (square, triangular, three-dimensional, etc.). Make a very large frame from the wire. Have a contest to see who can make the biggest bubble. Your child can record what works, what does not work, and think about why.
