DIY Bubbles


How fun are bubbles? I love setting a bowl of bubbles out on the porch and letting the kids play with them. It can usually last for a good half hour before the bowl gets spilled and someone ends up covered in bubbles.  Bubbles are way too expensive (at least here) to have them being spilled every time we use them. So we decided to just start making our own. WAY cheaper and they actually work better than a lot of the store bought ones. We use pipe cleaners as our bubble wands which work pretty well, too!


Mix 1 cup warm water with 1/2 cup sugar. Stir to dissolve. Add 1/2 cup Dawn dish soap. We used the orange kind this time which works well but everything I read says blue works better. 

P.S. Don’t shake it up to combine the soap with the sugary water…it leaves a top layer of bubbles that don’t go down for a LONG time! (You can see that in the photo above).

Let me know if you try it. Do you have any DIY bubbles tips? Share them with me!
