Make your own bubble solution
Bubbles, bubbles everywhere! Get creative with homemade bubbles by making your own solution. Follow the simple steps below and there will be bubbles galore!
Number of players:
What you need:
- 6 cups of water
- 2 cups of liquid dishwashing soap
- 3/4 cup of corn syrup (glucose syrup)
- large mixing bowl
- shallow pan
- pipe cleaners or wire coat hanger for a bubble wand
- adult assistance
Help your child to measure and combine water, dishwashing soap and corn syrup/glucose syrup in a large mixing bowl.
Leave for four hours and then pour into a shallow pan.
Make bubble wands by twisting pipe cleaners and coat hangers into circles, squares or any closed shape - the bigger the wand opening the bigger the bubble. Make sure you bend any sharp edges back so they do not make contact with the opening and don't forget to make a handle with the end.
Have your child dip the wand into the solution and gently wave their arm through the air to make bubbles.
