Bubble Recipes

All of these bubble recipes make great bubbles for children.  The Magic Bubble recipe is the favorite with my kids.  That recipe makes bigger bubbles that last a bit longer.  See hints for ideas on where to buy Glycerin.

Basic Bubbles

2 tblsp dish soap
1 cup water

Sweet Bubbles

1 tblsp corn syrup
2 tblsp dish soap
1 cup water

Magic Bubbles

1 tblsp glycerin
2 tblsp dish soap
9 oz water

Color Bubbles

1 cup liquid tempra paints
2 tblsp dish detergent
1 tblsp liquid starch

Hints for making bubble solutions

  • Mix up the recipes the day before for best results.
  • Glycerin is inexpensive and can be found in most drug stores.  The children think that the bubbles are so much better that it is worth keeping a small bottle on hand.
  • Do NOT use the Sweet Bubbles recipe if you have bees or wasps in your yard.
  • Try using sugar or honey if you don't have corn syrup in the house.
  • Color Bubbles can be a bit messy.  Be sure to use paint that can wash out.  You can add a little water if the mix is too thick.
  • Karo syrup does just as well as glycerin in the bubble mixture.  But watch out for wasps if you are using it outdoors! 
  • Giant Bubbles

    Here are some ideas sent in by our visitors.

    • "We have had great luck making giant bubbles by using cotton string and straws to make wands. Cut two sections of straws, about 6 inches long. Cut a string about 24 inches long. Pull the string through the straws, tie the string in a knot, and hide the knot inside a straw. By putting your hands on the straws and pulling, you create a square or rectangle. Dip this form into the pan of bubble solution, and gently draw it through the air. Voila, a giant bubble."

 

" MY THREE YEAR OLD WAS SCREAMING FOR MORE BUBBLE SO I ASK JEEVE AND FOUND YOUR SITE.... THANK YOU IT WORKS! FOR SENTED AND COLORED BUBBLES I USED PALMOLIVE WILD BERRY BLOSSOM DISH SOAP. SMELLS GOOD AND HAS A PRETTY ROSE COLORS! THANKS SO MUCH, MY BOYS ENJOYED THE BUBBLES ALL DAY LONG!"                                                          Cherie
