Homemade Bubbles

We have been wanting to try homemade bubbles for awhile and we finally got around to it last weekend.  This is a very easy process, and the bubbles turned out perfect! 

homemade bubbles 4

You will need: 1/2 cup light corn syrup, 1 cup liquid dish soap, and 1 1/2 quarts of water

I bought the cheapest version of both ingredients (around $4 for both) and have so much leftover.  This should last us throughout the spring/summer. 

Mix water and corn syrup together, then add dish soap.  Store in a sealed container (this red one is from Dollar Tree).  The large bubble wands are also from Dollar Tree.


These bubbles are much better than the cheapo bubbles you can buy!  I don’t think we will ever go back to store bought!




Some of our bubble mix spilled onto our walkway and it left a discolored area.  Once the area dried, the spot went away.  It rained here last night, and I saw that the spot shows up when it is wet.  Just wanted to put that out there so you can be careful not to spill!

You can find the original post where I found the recipe here.
