Yesterday, when I wrote about making homemade bubble wands with the kids, I promised to share photos of them using their new bubble wands as well as the instructions for how to make homemade bubbles.
So here goes!
First, I’ll share the bubbles recipe and then I’ll share the photos…
How to Make Homemade Bubbles
- 4 cups warm water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup Dawn dish soap
Step #1. Whisk the sugar and water.
Whisk the sugar into the warm water until the sugar dissolves.
Step #2. Whisk in the soap.
Add the dish soap and whisk to combine.
Step #3. Let sit.
This step is only if you have some patience or think to make the solution ahead of time. Letting the homemade bubbles sit for a couple of hours helps them work a bit better, but is not strictly necessary.
Step #4. Blow bubbles.
Now it’s time to blow bubbles with your new bubble solution!
Easy peasy, don’t you think?
We’ve also made homemade bubble solution with glycerin (when we have it) and baking soda (when I think of it), but this is the basic recipe and it works just fine on it’s own.
And here are some photos of the homemade bubbles and the homemade bubble wands in action.
As you can see, we simply have a big bowl or two of the bubble solution available to the kids.
Sometimes they blow bubbles themselves, sometimes they let the wind do the work, and sometimes they twirl around with bubble-laden wand in tow.
How about you? Have you made your own bubble solution? Do you have a favorite recipe? (If so, please share!)
