Homemade Bubble Fun


This is the first week of summer vacation for all of us. The kids are a little older now, so I want to keep them busy during the summer. I don’t want to hear “I’m bored!” I have been reading several different blogs to see how other moms help keep their kids occupied over the summer. I think we will make a list of things we want to do over the summer: some educational things, some fun things, some both.

Today I decided to try a recipe I came across for homemade bubbles. It contains no glycerin (many of the homemade recipes I’ve come across do). In fact, it is 3 ingredients – all of which we had in the house. The kids had a ball & we have a lot left for more fun later.

Homemade Bubble solution

1 cup water
1/4 cup dish soap
1/4 cup corn syrup

Mix all slowly & have fun!

I doubled the batch & put it in a wide mouth quart jar. The kids could dip their wands right in the jar. They had a great time and we hardly used any of it! We just put a lid on & will use when we feel like it. This will also be a great recipe to make at the camper. Next time they have friends over, we’re going to have a bubble party!
