This Nella the Princess Knight bubble wand tutorial is sponsored by Nickelodeon. All opinions are mine. #nellatheprincessknight
My preschooler is in the princess phase and is currently obsessed with all things pink, glittery and frilly. We recently stumbled upon Nella the Princess Knight on Nickelodeon and we both just love it! Amelia loves Nella, an unconventional 8-year-old princess, who is compassionate and graceful. And as a mom trying to raise a strong and confident girl, I appreciate that Nella also embodies the courage and determination of a brave knight. The show promotes self-confidence, inclusiveness and compassion for others. This show is definitely mom approved! Watch Nella the Princess Knight weekdays on Nickelodeon and “be your sparkly best”!
Inspired by Nella, we crafted up princess bubble wands using a few pipe cleaners and beads. This is a craft that most preschoolers can do independently or with little assistance. Just make sure to supervise when small beads are involved so nothing ends up in the mouth. These wands really work and they are so much fun to make. Bubbles are actually my secret weapon as a mom because it’s physically impossible to cry when you are blowing bubbles and have an almost immediate calming effect. They come in handy for those really cranky days. Keep on scrolling for the tutorial.
Small Heart Cookie Cutter
Step 1: Gather your supplies. You’ll need pipe cleaners, a small heart cookie cutter, beads and bubble solution. Break out the Nella the Princess Knight accessories because who wouldn’t want to craft in a tiara?!
Step 2: Wrap the top of a pipe cleaner around a small heart cookie cutter. Leave 1/2 inch of slack at the end to wrap around the base of the pipe cleaner. Remove the cookie cutter.
Step 3: String beads on the pipe cleaner and fold the end of the pipe cleaner so the beads stay on.
Step 4: Dip the heart in bubble solution and blow! To make your own DIY bubble solution, gently stir 1 cup of dish soap into 6 cups of water. Add 1 tablespoon of glycerin and gently mix. Allow to sit overnight before using.
Watch Nella the Princess Knight weekdays on Nickelodeon:
