Mega Monster Bubbles!




Wow! I think I had just as much fun as Emily with this homemade bubble solution and bubble wand. It is quite addictive! These bubbles are HUGE and they last a long time.

To make your own mega bubble solution, you will need: 6 cups distilled water, 2 cups Joy dishwashing detergent, and 3/4 cup light corn syrup. Stir the solution gently and let sit for a couple of hours for best results. Store any leftover bubble solution in an air-tight container.

For the bubble wands, try a length of yarn tied to a wooden dowel in the shape of a large "D". Hold by the dowel and walk slowly to form HUGE bubbles!

Your bubbles look great!

Where do you get distilled water?

Valerie said...

@ Christy -- It's so addicting! I kept trying to see how big I could make them. :-)

@ MaryAnne -- You can find distilled water in the bottled water aisle of the grocery store... It costs around $0.69-$0.79 for a gallon. For us, the distilled water was key because we have very hard water.

@ cipi -- Glycerin will work beautifully! Try just a few tablespoons instead of the light corn syrup. Homemade bubble solution works much better than the store bought kind because the bubbles you buy in the store are almost always heavily watered down.
