Learn how to make homemade super bubbles with this simple recipe! These bubbles are super big and super easy to make!

We love homemade bubble solution. It’s inexpensive and easy to make, which is great when you’ve got kids who love to blow bubbles!

And if you think regular bubble solution is fun, you need to try super bubbles! These bubbles are larger, floatier, and more vibrant than your average soap bubble, and they’re surprisingly easy to make.

With just a few household ingredients, you can create a bubble solution that will have everyone amazed. Here are the simple steps to make your own super bubbles.

How to Make Super Bubbles


  • 6 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of blue Dawn dish soap
  • 1/2 cup of cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of glycerin (optional, but it helps make the bubbles stronger and last longer)
  • Large bowl
  • Bubble wands and small jars for solution


  1. Mix water and soap

    In a large bowl, mix together the distilled water and dish soap gently to avoid creating foam.

  2. Add dry ingredients

    Add the cornstarch and baking powder to the mixture. Stir until they are completely dissolved.

    If you’re using glycerin, add it to the mixture and stir well.

  3. Let sit

    Let the bubble solution sit for at least 1 hour, or preferably overnight, to allow the ingredients to mix and the bubbles to strengthen.

That’s all there is to it! Once your bubble solution has had time to sit, you’re ready to blow some bubbles! We like to pour the solution into a bowl and use giant bubble wands to make the biggest bubbles possible! You can also use homemade bubble wands!

And if you’d prefer not to use glycerin in your bubble mixture, or don’t have any on hand, check out How to Make Homemade Bubbles.
