This is a really simple and easy way to make your own bubbles at home. I highly recommend trying this because you will get those huge gorgeous bubbles that the kiddos will love.
Sometimes I buy bubbles at the store and I find the bottle is a dud and we barely get any bubbles out of it. I couldn’t believe how easy this was to do and perfect to take with you for a 4th of July picnic!
I made this in about 8 minutes total and I just used things we already had on hand.
- Dish Soap
- Light Karo Syrup or Glycerin
- Add 1 cup of water to a large bowl
- Add 2 tablespoons of Light Karo Syrup or Glycerin
- Add 4 tablespoons of dish soap
- Mix together and that is it!
The Karo syrup you might already have on hand, otherwise it is about $3 at most stores. Glycerin is a little harder to find, I have had good luck at Michael’s. I believe it is about $5 but you can usually dig up a coupon to use for 40-50% off.
I just multiplied the recipe to make 8 cups and we used the large bubble wands from the Dollar Store.
You get big, thick bubbles that the kiddos will love. My 3 year old and 4 year old took turns chasing the bubbles and had a great time.
***Note: For the dish soap you will get the best results if you use Joy, Dawn or Ivory.
