What kid isn’t fascinated when blowing bubbles? It’s easy to make your own bubble solution for pennies with just water, dishwashing liquid and corn syrup. Get a few wands from your local dollar store and your kids will be set for an afternoon of fun!
We know those little store-bought bottles don’t go a long way so we made a basic one-cup recipe to store in a Mason jar and even have a printable label for it. The recipe can easily be adjusted for larger quantities, making it perfect as a bubble refill station for birthday parties or play dates.
When it comes to choosing dishwashing liquid don’t go cheap! We tested a few and discovered that high-quality soap works best.
Although easy to make, the ingredients should be mixed together a day ahead so plan accordingly.
