Giant Bubbles - Homemade Summer Fun!

We made some giant bubbles the other day with the kids and it was a lot of fun. I have to admit that I had more fun than even the kids. I love bubbles! Here's the bubble recipe we used:

1/2 C. Dawn dish detergent
1/2 C. corn syrup
1 gallon water.

Mix them in a large flat container (we used a big plastic bin). We remodeled coat hangers to use for the bubble blowers. It worked great. I've also seen this done with a huge batch (several gallons). You put them in a mini pool and the kids stand in the middle. You use a hoola hoop to make the giant bubbles over the children! What fun!

Here's another recipe that uses Glycerin if you happen to have it on hand:

1 cup dishwashing Joy or Dawn detergent
1 gallon water
1 Tbsp. glycerin

Happy Summer!

Bubbles Glycerin Recipe said...

Normally, bubbles burst after a short time because its outside layer evaporates quickly. That is, until manufacturers came up with an innovative solution through the addition of glycerin. Glycerin, or glycerol, is a thick and colorless alcohol which is a byproduct of soap making process. Its ability to dissolve with water makes it ideal for bubble making.
