When the weather is warm, these homemade bubbles are great for outdoor fun. But don’t let the weather stop you — these bubbles can be used indoors as well.
Just keep in mind that bubbles can make hard surfaces slippery very quickly and using food coloring in bubbles might stain some household surfaces.
In addition, while babies love bubble play, be careful around your baby’s eyes. You can try substituting the soap in these recipes with a baby shampoo or baby wash for tear-free bubbles.
Here are the instructions on how to do 3 different bubble solutions.
Best Homemade Bubble Solution
1 cup water
2 tablespoons light karo syrup or 2 tablespoons glycerin
4 tablespoons dishwashing liquid
Mix together and have fun!
Homemade Colored Bubbles
1 cup granulated soap or soap powder
1 quart warm water
Liquid food coloring
Small juice cans
Dissolve soap in warm water. Stir in food coloring until desired color is attained. Give each child a can about 1/3 full of mix and a plastic straw to blow the bubbles.
Fancy Homemade Bubbles
1 cup water
2 tablespoons liquid detergent
1 tablespoon glycerin
1 teaspoon sugar
Mix all ingredients together until sugar dissolves. Plastic straw is an ideal tool for blowing homemade bubbles. Just make 4 equal slits on one side of the straw that resemble a flower. Enjoy!
