Everyone should know how to make their own bubble solution. I’ve tested this recipe against a standard store-bought brand, and I think it actually works better. Plus, anytime kids can be involved in making something as part of the outdoor activity, they’re automatically going to be more engaged.
Plus you can turn several household items into a bubble wand, so you’re all set there, too. I like using a spoon with slats, a jar ring, a straw for tiny bubbles, or even a wire hanger to shape as your own bubble wand. Another quick and easy way to make bubble wands is to use pipe cleaners. You can twist and turn these into any shape you want and even add handlesl. Have fun and use your imagination. Here’s the bubble solution we use at my house!
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup dish soap
- 1/4 cup light Karo syrup
Mix well and store in a plastic container with a tight lid.
