Giant Bubbles

Giant bubbles are extraordinary: ten seconds of rainbow beauty and almost supernatural wonder at the end of a wand.

Using the Giant Bubble Wand and XXXtra Strong Bubble Mix, find a good spot outside where you can run fast for a few metres.

The best technique for creating giant bubbles is to dip the open wand into the bubble mix then slide the loop closed. Lift the wand out, draw it open and then run at a brisk pace holding the wand to one side so air rushes through it. You'll instantly produce a huge elongated bubble that streams several metres behind you.

Humidity is the most important thing: if you can't make good bubbles, blame it on the weather and try again in the evening or another day.
