Here’s what you need for the bubble recipe:

  • 6 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of blue dawn dish detergent
  • 1/2 cup of corn starch
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder (not baking soda!!)
  • 1 tbsp of glycerine (we bought ours at Michael’s craft store in the cake department)

Mix the water and the corn starch together first, mixing really well. Then add all of the other ingredients. We find it best to let it sit for at least 45 minutes to an hour first before using the mixture. 

For the wand, you will need to wooden sticks, 2 eyelet screws and some cotton rope. Screw in the eyelet screws at the end of the sticks. Tie the cotton rope through the eyelet screws and tie a know to make a full circle. Then dip your cotton rope into the mixture and pull the sticks out together slowly. It is best to do this on a non-windy day. Then pull the sticks apart.

I’ve also seen the wand sticks at the dollar store, but not sure how they work…

We have made different size sticks so that the bubbles are made differently and the kids can also enjoy the bubbles too!

Once you get the hang of it, the next challenge is to pull the sticks apart and then bring them back together so that you can make the bubble close off and leave the wand. Seriously, we can play with these bubbles for hours at a time!
