Kids Christmas Craft: Snowman Bubbles

snowman bubbles

My goal this year is to simplify our Christmas spending by making some of our stocking stuffer gifts.  It’s a wonderful tradition that I want to continue in our family but this was a great place to start on simplifying our Christmas spending.  I have heard of families who spend $100′s of dollars on stocking stuffers.  I can see how that happens because all those little trinkets add up even if they were $3 or less. Unfortunately, some of those stocking stuffers don’t even get used, ever. I haven’t shared this idea with the hubs yet, he, he, he but my desire is for all of us to make stocking stuffers for each other instead of spending tons of money on each stocking.

Here’s the first stocking stuffer handmade gift idea: Snowman Bubbles.

This is also a simple but cute Christmas party favor or class gift. Last year, we handed these out to my sons classmates as a little Christmas gift.

Kids Christmas Craft: Snowman Bubbles

You will need:

baby food jars or another type of small container.

Wire for the dipper, I just cut jewelry wire and shaped it for dipping. 

Bubbles solution- I used a mix of store-bought and homemade. I used this recipe from here for our DIY Bubbles Solution & Magical wand post we made back in the summer.

For the face I used wiggle eyes, construction paper and sharpie, black felt for the hat.

Stay tune and check back for our other wonderful handmade stocking stuffer ideas!
