Making Bubbles

Making bubbles is always a blast. If you want to make different colored bubbles, just add a few drops of food coloring to your solution.

DIFFICULTY: EASY

Makes about 1 quart of bubble solution

3 cups water

1 cup Joy brand dishwashing liquid (for some reason this is the brand that works best)

⅓ cup light corn syrup

Bubble wands, any size or shape

  • Mix the water, dishwashing soap, and corn syrup together in an airtight container with a tight cover.

  • Once the solution is mixed well, you can either use it straight out of the container or put the solution into a shallow bowl so more people can reach it at once.

GET CREATIVE

If you don't have an old wand left over from other jars of bubbles, you can make your own out of a wire hanger or a plastic strawberry basket. Experiment with different sizes and shapes, and see what happens!
