Looking for a fun summer activity with the kids? Making homemade bubbles is super simple and uses ingredients that you already have sitting around your house.
I first started making my own bubbles this past summer when one of my toddlers threw a tantrum because the other knocked over the bubble container, making a soapy mess of the deck. I remembered my son making bubbles at preschool and created a similar recipe based upon what I could remember. And it worked! I cannot promise that these bubbles are as great as the store's, but my kiddos loved them! In fact, I have not bothered to buy new bubbles since.
Difficulty Level: Easy
Project Time: Less than 5 minutes
1/2 cup dish soap
1 cup water
1/8 cup sugar
Empty container/bubble wand
Measuring cups (1 cup, 2 cup sizes)
1. Mix dish soap, water, and sugar and whisk until blended. Then pour mixture into empty container (I like to reuse old bubble containers) and fill about ¾ full (leaving space allows room for bubbles when you shake it).
2. Place lid on container and shake vigorously.
3. Allow to settle for a few minutes. Go blow some bubbles!
Isn't this neat? Who knew you could do this so easily at home? Thanks so much for reading!
