The Best Homemade Bubble Recipes


Making your own bubble solution is a fun, easy, and cheap way to keep your kids entertained.

My son loves playing with bubbles and I do as well. This is an outdoor activity that we enjoy almost any time of the year.

I would make two gallons of bubble solution to have ready as an activity to do after tie-dying.

Now that I am a parent, I have tried making that same recipe a couple of times but haven’t been able to get the same large, stretchy bubbles that we got years earlier.

Gently mix the ingredients together by hand and let the solution sit overnight, uncovered. The “sitting overnight” part is really important.
