Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles… what little girl doesn’t love to blow bubbles? Whenever we buy Zoë and Kaylee bubbles, they are gone within an hour and they’re begging for more. And, sadly, I have found that the bubbles from the Dollar Store just don’t perform well (plus, who knows what’s really in them!).
I remember making bubbles as a kid, so I decided that it was time for us to attempt it! The girls really love being able to see how things are made, so we’ve been doing a lot of DIY projects together this summer.
Now that I know how easy it is to make our own bubbles at home, I’ll never go back to store-bought bubbles!
Shockingly Simple Homemade Bubble Solution
Ingredients & Supplies
- 2 cups warm water
- 1/3 cup natural dish soap
- ¼ cup white sugar (you can also substitute half glycerine)
- 8 oz jelly jars with lids
- Mason jar labels
- Pipe cleaners
- Mixing bowl with whisk
- Pour 2 cups of water into your mixing bowl.
- Stir in the white sugar until it’s totally dissolved.
- Mix in the dish soap until it’s combined.
- Pour the mixture into the labeled jars (it should make about 3 jelly jars of bubble solution).
- Shape your pipe cleaners into the shape of a bubble wand or reuse old bubble wands.
- If your kids don’t use all the bubbles up right away, they should keep for about a month as long as you keep the lids tightly sealed on mason jars. Stir gently before each use.
