Hi there, Skip to My Lou readers!  I’m Jill and I blog over at Create.Craft.Love!  I’m so excited to be here with you today!  I know that keeping the kiddos occupied during the summer can be exhausting.  I have a 4 year old who never stops!  We came up with these fun Bubble Wand Flowers the other day and they have been a huge hit!  They are made from foam pool noodles!



These Bubble Wand Flowers are super easy to make!  Here’s what you need:

  • Foam pool noodles (you can cut your own or use the pre-cut ones from the craft store like I did)
  • Paper straws
  • Ribbon
  • Bubbles


Simply, take the foam piece and straw.  Gently push the straw through the foam.  I just applied pressure with the straw and twisted back and forth until it broke through the foam.


Add a little ribbon to give it some flair!


These are so easy to make!  I whipped up these three in less than 5 minutes!

The straws may get a little soggy, but they can easily be swapped out for fresh ones!


They really work too!  We had a blast experimenting!


If you are looking for more fun summer projects, I’d love for you to stop by Create.Craft.Love!

  1. On a side note, I’ve seen “dessert sticks” at several places. They look just like the paper straws, but are made of a harder plastic material. They’d be worth looking into if you have bubble-obsessed children like I do. They’re slightly more expensive than paper straws, but still right around $2.
