One of our favorite things to do outside is to blow bubbles! It’s always fun, but it’s especially nice to do in the shade on a hot day.
This is one of our favorite homemade bubble recipes because it is so easy to make.
Homemade Bubble Recipe
- 4 cups of water
- 1/2 cup of corn syrup
- 1/2- 2/3 cup of dish soap
You want the water to be fairly warm. I heat it up in my kettle and well before it starts boiling I take it off and dump it into our bubble jar. If you have really hot tap water you can probably use that too.
You add the corn syrup to the warm water and stir it until it dissolves. Then add the dish soap.
We used to only use Dawn dish soap but now I use whatever I have. This batch was made with lime and sea salt Method dish soap and it smelled delicious.
After it sits and cools it’s time to play!
We think the solution gets even more bubbly after the first day so feel free to make it in advance.
We make ours in a big half gallon mason jar because the measurements are on the side and there is a top for storage but if you are worried about the glass breaking use whatever container you have.
Blowing bubbles is one of our Old School Summer activities!
