Spring is here and that means we are dusting off all of favorite outdoor activities! My little one loves bubbles and they are even more fun when they are gigantic. The perfect weather for this activity is little-to-no wind, overcast, and warm. We keep this recipe in a bubble container so we can use these all the time. This inexpensive recipe for gigantic bubbles is super easy to follow and both kids and adults agree the results are amazing!
— 6 cups of water
— 1/2 cup blue Original Dawn Dish Soap // I have used the off-brand and the bubbles did not form as well.
— 1/2 cup Corn Starch
— 1 tbsp Glycerine | TIP: You can find this at your local Michael’s or JoAnn’s
— 1 tbsp Baking Powder (NOT baking soda)
— 2 drops Food coloring (optional)
— WhiskDirections: To make the bubble mixture, add 6 cups of water to your bucket. Dissolve 1/2 of cup of cornstarch — mix well.Add 1/2 cup of blue dawn dish soap, 1 TBSP of baking powder, and 1 TBSP of Glycerin, and 2 drops of food coloring (this is optional).
Whisk the mixture really well. Allow the mixture to sit for at least an hour while stirring occasionally (if you have older kids… this might be a recipe you mix up the night before and have ready for the kids in the morning because sometimes waiting is hard!)After the bubble mixture has set for an hour, go outside and create some bubbles! It takes a few tries to get into a groove. Don’t get discouraged if you aren’t making huge bubbles right of the bat. Once we finally practiced a few times and did some serious popping, we had the neighbors and people driving by all stop and to watch our bubbles. We had a few bubbles the size of a car floating over the house, it was so fun! If you want to make and use the same wand we did, you can find the tutorial for that here.
