St. Patrick's Day legend says that fairies catch rides on bubbles from leprechaun pipes.

What You'll Need:


Kitchen knife



Cool-temp glue gun and glue

1 cup warm water

1/2 cup green dish-washing liquid

1 teaspoon salt


Plastic spoon

Find a large acorn. With adult help, cut the top off and dig out the meat to make a little bowl. Make a hole in the side near the bottom of the bowl, just big enough for the straw to fit into.

Using the cool-temp glue gun (with adult help), put the straw into the hole and fill the area around the straw with glue. Blow gently through the straw to make sure no glue is clogging the hole.

Set the bubble pipe aside. Mix up some bubble solution by adding 1 cup warm water, 1/2-cup green dish-washing liquid, and 1 teaspoon salt together in a bowl. Stir until the salt dissolves.

Dip the pipe in the bubble solution, and blow gently.

Next, conjure up St. Patrick's Day fun with some green-magic rings.
