Making homemade bubble solution

What You Need:


  • 6 cups water

  • 1 cup liquid dish soap

  • Clean container with lid

  • ¼ cup light corn syrup

  • Bubble wands, including clean items found at home (e.g., pipe cleaner, round cookie cutter, plastic funnel, new unused fly swatter)

What To Do:


  1. Pour all the water into the container.

  2. Pour the liquid dish soap into the water, slowly stirring it until the soap is mixed in.

  3. Add the corn syrup to the mixture.

  4. The solution can be used right away, however for best results, let the solution sit overnight with the container covered.

  5. When ready to use, dip the bubble wand into the solution and have the child slowly blow a bubble through it until the bubble comes loose from the wand.
