Tie one end of the yarn to one of the sticks.  Do this for both pieces of yarn. Step_4.JPG

Tie the opposite ends of the yarn pieces to the other stick.  Try and make both strings the same length.

While holding one hand on each of the ends of the sticks, dip the yarn and sticks in the container filled with bubble solution and slowly pull it out…watch your bubble grow!
