Bubbles have always been a hit or miss for us, and usually more of a miss. The last few bubbles and bubble packs that we have purchased at the store have fallen flat – the solutions were so watered down that hardly any bubbles were blown from it. So frustrating! I decided to try and remedy our bubble issues and try my hand at making them myself.
IT WORKED! This solution is hands down better than any solution I’ve found at a store. Bubble-wise, that is. It does have its drawback – it’s kinda sticky. I think the good outweigh the bad on this one, however. The bubbles are huge. One was bigger than Lorelai’s head! It’s also extremely simple to make.
The recipe below will fill a mason jar! Cut in half or thirds for less. =)
Materials We Used:
- Mason Jar
- 3 cups of water
- 6 tablespoons of Light Karo Syrup
- 3/4 cup of dishwashing liquid
- Plastic Cup & Bubble Wands
Directions: Mix all of the ingredients together and have a blast! That’s it!
Tip: Pour enough of the solution to cover the entire end of the bubble wand. I was stingy at first, but more bubble solution = more bubbles. You can always pour it back in to the mason jar when you’re done!
Bubble Wand Ideas: Homemade Bubble Wand, leftovers from other bubbles, slotted spoons, flyswatters (new!), water bottle cut on half, etc!
Bubble Activity: Bubble Painting
We just made these except we used light caro syrup with the blue label and the bubbles are not sticky. Yay! Thank you. The store bought bubbles are disappointing!

It makes good bubbles, but when they popped in my 2-year old’s eyes it really hurt him. Any ideas for bubbles that don’t use dish soap (or are eye friendly :o) )
Aw, I’m sorry it hurt his eye. Maybe try a natural dish soap?
