Today Show: Martha Stewart Giant Bubble Wand DIY
You will need: liquid dish soap, light corn syrup, large shallow container, cotton twins, drinking straw, bubble solution, scissors.
Bubble Solution Directions: Pour 10 cups water, 4 cups dish soap, and 1 cup corn syrup in a container and stir to combine. You can also use store bought solution.
Thread the twine through 2 straws, cutting off any flexible part of the straw. Make a rectangle with straws as the long sides. Knot and trim the excess. You are ready to dip and blow bubbles.
Today: Martha Stewart Potato Tee Shirt Stamp
You will need: Potato, tee shirt, paint, knife, cookie cutter.
Directions: Martha made a teeshirt stamp with a potato. All you need to do is take the potato and have a parent or adult cut out shapes with a knife or cookie cutter. Stab the stamp with a fork to use as a handle, but don’t go all the way through the potato. Dip it in paint and then stamp and press on a teeshirt. Applying more pressure will give you a better stamp.
Today Show: Martha Stewart Decorated Flip Flops How-To
You will need: Flip flops, decorations (Martha used plastic animals and butterflies), Tacky Glue, binder clips
Directions: A great idea for summer birthday party favors, Martha’s flip flop how-to is really easy and an overnight project. Just take the flip flops and pick out whatever decoration you like – Martha used plastic bugs, butterflies, and frogs. Glue them to the strap of the flip flop and hold in place with a binder clip. Viola!
