It would be best if you measure the length of the box and adjust the stick and the ring accordingly. The ring should not reach the bottom of the box.

Now is the time to roll up our sleeves and move on to assembling our small bubble maker. To get started, take the Tic Tac box and gently remove the cap.

Apply a blob of hot glue to the inside of the cover, then attach the small wooden stick upright.

Once the stick is well glued, fix the small plastic ring on its other end, so that it is in a vertical position. While waiting for the glue to dry, be sure to hold it securely in place so that it fixes in the correct position.

Now it’s time to get down to business: give our super bubble machine fuel. There are lots of interesting recipes for a soap bubble liquid on the Internet but for this tiny bubble maker you can only use a solution from liquid soap and water. Pour them directly into the Tic Tac box.

Don’t put too much soap, simply press the nozzle twice, and fill with water to the top. After that, carefully close the Tic Tac box and shake it well so as to mix the water well with the soap!
