Homemade Bubbles for Kids

homemade bubbles

My kids love to blow bubbles.  Sadly, I have gotten to hate the smell of the dollar store bubbles.  When I found this, I realized it was cheaper and worked a whole lot better!  Give it a try!

You will want to grab some pipe cleaners from the Dollar Store so that you can make your own bubble blowers too.  We also als used some straws which were another great find!

To make the bubble solution, you will need:

  • 2 1/2 cups hot water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup liquid dish soap

Add 1/2 cup light corn syrup to the hot water and whisk well until it is dissolved. Stir slowly and try to avoid adding a lot of air to the mixture.   Slowly add the 1/2 cup liquid dish soap, and whisk well. Again avoid making a ton of bubble.

Cool and pour into a container.  Then you are ready to blow bubbles.  Plastic cups make great containers for kids to use!
