I made these one weekend for a bunch of kids including our grandbabies. They all had a BLAST! We used bubble wands from some store bought bubbles. When the bottles ran out of the small amount of $1 solution we refilled them with this homemade solution that cost less than $1 for a whole gallon!

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 gallon water
  • 23 cup liquid dish soap
  • 2 -3 tablespoons glycerin

Directions

  1. Measure and pour into a 1 gallon container. I use a pitcher like this http://www.rubbermaid.com/rubbermaid/images/product/7e59_lg.jpg.
  2. This solution is ready to use right away but work even better when the solution is made the day before.
  3. You can even make your own bubble wands forming pipe cleaners, fly swatters into a wand shape- circle with a handle.
  4. Really BIG bubbles: pour solution into a pizza pan. Make a BIG wand with a metal coat hanger stretched into a circle. Give the solution something to hang on to by wrapping yarn around the metal circle. Dip wand into solution and make bubbles.
  5. TURBO Bubbles: Hold your bubble want in front of a fan! This does not work well with big bubbles, but try it anyway!
