Make Your Own Bubble Solution!


All kids love bubbles, so why not throw a little science education into the mix one day and make your own bubble solution with the kids! Here’s an easy recipe below:

Bubble solution

1/2 cup  Dishwasher Detergent

4-1/2  cups water

4 tablespoons glycerin (available in pharmacies)

Measure out the water, detergent and glycerin into the container with a cover and stir gently.

Note: The longer you let the mixture set, the larger the bubbles are and the longer they seem to last.

Extension activity: encourage the kids to use recycled material to create their own bubble wands while they are waiting for the mixture to set.
