Simple Kids have a recipe for fun that works well on a grassy lawn, outside on the steps, under the shade of a tree, and even in the kitchen.
Give it a try for a bubbly fun afternoon.
Simple Kids Homemade Bubble Solution
1. Gather small and large plastic or steel funnels, drinking straws, rubber bands ( thick and thin)
2. Mix together in a bowl or metal baking pan:
1 cup warm water
½ cup dishwashing soap
1 teaspoon light corn syrup (optional)
3. Combine ingredients in a bowl, or metal baking pan and stir well.
To begin, dip the open end of the funnel, paper cone, or drinking straw into the soapy solution and blow lightly through the non-soapy end. The corn syrup helps to create a sturdy BIG bubble.
Once the kids have mastered the art of bubble blowing have a contest to see who can make the largest bubble.
Positively Splendid makes bubble wands from pipe cleaners. They have a hint: no matter the shape of the wand the bubbles will always be round.
