The ultimate bubble station.
It was a no-brainer to use canning jars since we use them for EVERYTHING in this house, plus they are the perfect size for holding bubble solution and are easy for the kiddo’s to dip into. But the best part about using canning jars is that since the kiddo’s wont be spilling their bubble solution, all I have to do is screw the lids on the canning jars once they are finished and we have the remaining bubble solution ready for next time.
I can’t tell you enough how much I love this little bubble station of ours. It has really turned bubble time into something fun and not something I used to dread.
As you can see, the design is super simple. The top board is large enough for 5 holes and thick enough so that the canning jars wont tip over. The bottom piece of wood is a piece of ply-wood and is there just to keep the canning jars from falling out.
To cut the holes, the hubby simply used a hole saw that was slightly larger then a canning jar.
Once the boards were cut out I sanded and painted the two pieces of wood…orange of course. And as you can see, I’m not the best as sanding or rather, I’m very impatient. But really, if you are going to make one, take the extra time to do a better job sanding then I did. You will be thankful you did. Then after a few coats we screwed the boards together from underneath so that the screws wouldn’t show.
And there you have it, our perfect little bubble station!
Of course this little caddy isn’t used just for blowing bubbles. A caddy made for holding canning jars can be used for ANYTHING! Just think of all of the goodies that can be stored in this little caddy. I already have used it for holding candles, flowers, drinks and kids snacks.
