* Mirror Mirror Puppy Love Bubble Potion Craft Project, plus a Mirror Mirror Movie Giveaway!

The girls and I were inspired by the new movie, 
Mirror Mirror, to make this fun craft!

One of our favorite scenes in the movie trailer, is the scene with the evil queen,
(played by Oscar-winner Julia Roberts --we love her!) 
when she accidentally gives the prince "Puppy Love" potion and he acts like a silly dog. 
The girls and I laugh out loud every time we see it!

We decided to make our own "Puppy Love" potion and make a game out of it.
First, we picked up some bottles of bubble solution at the store. 
(the kind we used can be found at Walmart and Target)
Then, we got to work "transforming" them into magical potion bottles!

To make our magic bubble potions, we glued glittery foam heart stickers 
to scrapbook paper labels and added stickers to show what kind of potion is inside the bottle. 

I attached the labels with my glue gun (but you could also use craft glue) - 
safety note: make sure an adult uses the glue gun- they're too hot for small fingers! 

Then, I added some bling to the bubble bottles with some decorative craft gems and my glue gun.

Our finished "Puppy Love" bubble potion bottle.

Then, we decided to make some fancy bubble wands to go with our fancy potion bottles!

"C" (age 5) helped me make homemade bubble wands
by stringing beads onto chenille pipe cleaners.

For each wand, we shaped the top first (circles, hearts, diamonds)
then strung on some beads and twisted the end to keep the beads from falling off. 

The homemade bubble wands hold more bubble solution and make huge bubbles!

Our homemade magic bubble potions,

"True Love"
"Puppy Love"
and "Kitty Love"

When we finished making the bubble bottles and wands, 
we headed outside to test them out!

Our game was great fun in the backyard.

We took turns blowing bubbles from the different potion bottles.
If a bubble touches you from one of the bottles, you have to act like that thing.
For example, here is "C" transformed into a puppy as big sister "E"
blows "Puppy Love" potion bubbles on her!

Because my daughter "C" loves all things kitty, 
we had to make a batch of pink "Kitty Love" bubble potion too!

Watch out, if you get tagged by a "kitty love" potion bubble,
you'll have to act like a kitty cat!

Of course we had to make some "True Love" potion too!

The girls had a great time playing in the backyard with their new 
"magic" bubble potions and homemade bubble wands!

This idea is so cute. I will definitely be putting it on my Pinterest to return to in Spring/Summer when the bubble blowing gets to a more regular occurrence (the rain and wind here as of late is not bubble blowing friendly!). Thanks for the chance to win!

Natalie H. said...

So fun, can't wait to share with my little ones :)

What a cute idea! I love the idea of magical bubbles and cute puppies, lol.
I wanted to see this movie the moment I saw the preview!
I'm going to make some puppy love potion with my girls for a girly Mirror Mirror movie day!
Thanks for the idea (and the giveaway)

sarah said...

I love the stuff you come up with! My girls can't wait to see this movie. What fun!


Denise said...

My girls and I crack up at the "you can throw sticks, I will retreive them" part, too! We are going to see the movie during spring break. The bubble wands will be a great "pre-game."


Sheri said...

So fun! We need to try making our own wands because we have trouble with the bubbles popping before they are even blown :) I would love to win, I was thinking the movie looked good! Thanks!

Geri Johnson said...

Hi! These are so cute I had to pin them! I love the movie trailers - Julia Roberts looks like she is having so much fun she cracks me up every time I see her! I can't wait for the movie to come out!

Thanks for a great give away. Love going to the movies!! The bubble wands will be awesome favors for a future birthday party.

Dear PGMom,
Looks like a delightful project! It's always fun to bring something that was merely a visual stimulant (like a movie) into a tactile and motor-skilled activity.

Thanks for sharing,

The project is great!! But the most important thing I learned was you can make bubble wands from PIPE CLEANERS!! I That is an important lesson!!

Now I want to go break out the pipe cleaners and try this with my girls!

Lillian said...

This is so cute! I love the idea of making wands out of chenile stems. Didn't know you could do that!

I can't wait to see that movie, either. I hope you give us a review after you've seen it.


Melissa @ The Chocolate Muffin Tree said...

I love the homemade bubble wands! You always have such creative ideas! We will definitely be making these (or at least me!)

Anne said...

Hooray for pipe cleaners!! And please count me in for the giveaway! :D

Kajsia said...

The Bubbles are adorable! My nephew loves to play with them! I also love Snow White and can't wait to see the movie!

This is a somewhat general comment, but since you opened things up to win something, I thought I'd take the time to share.
I found your blog via Pinterest and immediately set up an RSS Feed. I am a mom and a Girl Scout leader and your clever ideas have really inspired me. This latest bubble wand idea is super cute. We are thinking of some things we'd like to do for our end-of-year party and I think the girls would LOVE to run around outside and blow bubbles with their new wands.
Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

What a fun project! Will pin! :)
