How to Make Giant Bubbles!

homemade giant bubbles

This is one of my favorite summer time activities! My mom introduced me to it, and we’ve done it at family reunions, parties, etc.! It’s so fun and simple that I have to share. The lovely lady in the pictures is my 92 year old grandma 🙂


How to Make the Bubble Solution:

What you’ll need:
  • 12 cups Purified Water
    (We don’t always use the purified water, so regular water is fine and cheaper. However, the purified water probably works a little better because it doesn’t have the extra minerals in it that might affect how well the bubbles work).
  • 5 cups Unscented and uncolored Dish washing Soap (such as Dawn)
  • 1/2 cup Corn Syrup
    (The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup glycerin, but corn syrup works just as well and it is much cheaper!)
Pour the water into a bucket or clean plastic container. Pour the dishwashing soap into the water. Then mix it gently with a wooden spoon. Pour the corn syrup in. Mix gently again. (You don’t want ANY bubbles). Also I understand that if you let the bubble solution sit overnight it will work even better.
I don’t have any pictures yet for how to make the wooden wands, but you can see step-by-step instructions for that here.

I’ll try to update this post to include all the instructions when I get the chance!

As you can see, these are so much fun for any age! 🙂
