Bubble Trail Blower Bottle | Outdoor Craft

Cool off in the summer months with a bubble trail blower! This craft is super simple to make and loved by kids of all ages.

All you need are a couple of household items to up-cycle into a fun toy for the garden.

Follow these simple step-by-step instructions and you’ll be blowing brilliant bubble trails in no time at all!

Why not have a competition to see who can blow the longest train of bubbles?

Maybe you disagree, but the bubble trail blower activity reminds us a little bit about what elephants can do with their brilliant trunks. If your little one adores elephants as much as we do we recommend you to check out our Fun Facts for Kids page about 14 fantastic elephant facts
