This page will eventually be an article about how to use a tri-string. In the meantime, here are some videos that will help you get started.
These videos of my then 3 year-old son Jakey give you a basic idea of the bubble-making technique with garlands and tri-strings.
- Keep the wand dips together when dipping the wand AND when raising the wand.
- Raise the wand tips high before opening the wand
- Stand with the wind at your back (if there is any). You want the wind to carry the bubbles away from you.
- If there is no wind, walk backwards.
Jakey (3-1/2) tries out a full-size tri-string for the first time. Use this technique when there is wind.
This video is not ours. The recipe is not ours and is a bit detergent-heavy for our tastes. Also, with a heavy wick like the one used, we would not recommend using a weight/washer.

When there is no wind, walking backwards is one way to create bubbles.
