About

Remember how much fun you had with bubbles? Well, your child will love them just as much as you did! From blowing to popping and chasing, bubbles offer a great way to get some physical activity - and bragging rights to whoever blows the biggest one!

How To

What You’ll Need:

  • 12 cups water
  • 1 cup dish soap
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • Bubble wands, wire coat hangers, paper towel tube, plastic rings

 

Mix ingredients together in order in a clean pail. Stir occasionally in a gentle pattern so there isn't too much foam. Take away any foam as it forms. Add another cup of water when the pail is half empty.

If you don't have any bubble wands, use a paper towel tube and plastic rings, or bend a coat hanger into a loop. Store extra solution in a tightly sealed container. Solution that has been sitting for a few days makes the biggest bubbles!
