D.I.Y. Bubble Solution, Bubble Wands & Blowers | Tutorial

With the end of summer heat wave and the scrounge to find something, anything, to entertain the kids before school starts in a few weeks, you might be out of ideas or too frazzled to even think straight. But don’t fret! You can make something with things you may already have in your house that will keep the kids outside and entertained long enough for you to do a load of laundry and cook dinner.

Bubble solution, wands, and blowers!

Take a peek inside your cupboards and pull out:

-measuring cup

-light corn syrup

-liquid dish soap

-bottle or container {with a lid} to hold the bubble solution

-pipe cleaners {in your favorite colors!}

-straws

-decorative tape

-mixing bowl

-wire whisk or spoon

To make the solution:

Pour 2 1/2 cups of hot water into bowl

Pour in 1/2 cup of corn syrup and stir or whisk well until corn syrup is dissolved

Slowly pour in 1/2 cup liquid dish soap and stir or whisk well

Pour solution into bottle or container

Let solution cool for a few hours before use

To make wands & blowers:

With pipe cleaners:

Take pipe cleaner and shape the top into a circle, wrapping the end around the stem of the cleaner. I used three different size washi tape rolls to get the circle shape. You could also use different shaped cookie cutters to shape your pipe cleaners around.

With straws:

Take three or four straws and bundle them together

Wrap washi tape around each end of the straws to hold in place

I added a cute label to the jar of bubbles

And you’re done! Grab your bubble solution, wand and blowers and head outside with the kiddos to fill the skies with bubbles. Or you can shove them out the door and get your chores done. But blowing bubbles is much too fun to pass up.
