Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles… what little girl doesn’t love to blow bubbles? We’ve started making our own homemade bubble solution. Why? 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 wish I would have known sooner how easy it is to make our own homemade bubble solution!
I remember making bubbles as a kid all the time, so I decided that it was time for to attempt it with my sweet girls! The girls really love being able to see how things are made and helping to make them, so we’ve been doing a lot of DIY projects together this summer – and that will definitely continue through the years.
Now that I know how easy it is to make our own homemade bubble solution at home, I’ll never go back to store-bought bubbles! Once you try it, you’ll understand why.
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.
