Good weather is finally upon us, and my children want to be outside all day long!  We love to blow bubbles, and we go through our bubble solution like crazy!  Did you know that you can make your own homemade bubble solution and bubble blowers?   The best part is, you probably already have all the ingredients and supplies in your home, and the bubbles come out big and beautiful!

You will need to gather up a few supplies.

Supplies:

  • Water
  • Liquid Dish Soap
  • Light Corn Syrup
  • Bottle or Container to store Bubble Solution
  • 12 inch Pipe Cleaners (in any color you prefer)
  • Straws
  • Tape

To make the bubble solution, you will need:

  • 2 1/2 cups hot water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup liquid dish soap
Add 1/2 cup light corn syrup to the hot water and whisk well until it is dissolved.  Slowly add the 1/2 cup liquid dish soap, and whisk well.

Pour the bubble solution into a bottle or a container with a lid.  Let the solution rest for a few hours before using it for the best results.

To make bubble blowers,  line up some straws together and wrap around with tape.  To make bubble wands, bend pipe cleaners around cookie cutters or various shapes, and wrap the extra wire around the stick portion to hold in place.

You can also pour the solution into individual jars for each child, and you will be good to go!  Re-using jars, or plastic cups (such as yogurt cups with lids) works just great!

Now, grab your wands, blowers, and bubble solution and get outside!  Be sure to enjoy the good weather with some good old fashion bubble blowing that your kids are sure to enjoy!
