DIY Bubbles

Ohhhh boy. We’ve made a LOT of bubbles recipes this week! I haven’t been able to buy bubbles through driveup at Target all summer but it is really a blessing in disguise because making your own bubbles is easy and WAY more fun than just buying it.

We tried maybe 10 different recipes out this week, and have landed on THESE from the DIY Network as our favorites. Find the original recipe post here. Each of these bubbles recipes behaves differently. Try them out and see how your bubbles act!

As far as wands go, we found pipe cleaners work better than art wire as wands, I’m assuming because of the rough surface (but I don’t know the science behind this). The soft pipe cleaners soaked up too much bubbles solution, but the metallic ones worked SO WELL.

Dura Bubbles

This recipe from DIY Network is magical. We love how durable the bubbles are. The secret ingredient is something my fellow bioplastic fanatics already have on hand: GELATIN.

  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1/4 cup dish soap
  • 1 .25oz packet of gelatin powder
  • 2T glycerin

These bubbles are so strong they land and linger on the grass!

Mile High Bubbles

And also from DIY Network, these “mile high bubbles” are fantastic.

  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1/3 cup dish soap
  • 1/4 cup CORN SYRUP.

The strength of this recipe is in the name!

I hope you have time to make your own bubbles soon. It is so fun and easy! Happy bubble blowing!
