Homemade Bubbles

My husband's aunt gave me this recipe. I thought it sounded fun and couldn't wait to try it out. I made this for a park play date we had with some of our friends. The kids all had a lot of fun making and popping bubbles. I had a bunch of bubble wands to choose from and some plastic hangers. The plastic hangers make BIG bubbles! The kids loved that. I doubled the recipe because I was making it for a lot of kids. I can't believe I haven't tried this before now. It was so easy and the kids had so much fun with it.

All you need to do is combine

1 gallon of water
1 cup of Dawn dishwashing liquid detergent
1/2 cup light corn syrup

Slowly stir all ingredients together. You want to avoid making too many suds. It's that EASY!

Great blog! Does it have to be Dawn detergent? We are overseas and can't get that brand.

Jill,

Thanks for the nice compliment!

Margie,

I have seen a few different recipes that call for Dawn. I think you could use a different brand. You just may have to experiment with the measurements. I bet you could make it work.
