How to Make Homemade Bubbles
For the bubble mixture, mix the dish soap, glycerin, and water together than set it aside.
Homemade Bubble Wands Kids Can Make
Take the end of a piece of wire and form into a round circle, about 3 inches in diameter. Twist the end to close the circle. Next, pull the other end straight down for the handle, make this as long as you would like and snip off the end.
Have your children string the beads on the wire handle (make words, designs, whatever they want). After they are finished their design twist the end of the wire to secure the beads and snip off any extra wire.
Dip the bubble wand into the soap mixture and blow to make big bubbles.
These are so much fun in the spring and summer! Perfect to set up a craft for the day and then fun playtime outdoors.
DIY Bubble wands also make a great party craft and activity. Kids love making this plus, running around after bubbles are always exciting. Let them take their bubble wand and a container of bubble juice home for the perfect goodie bag idea 😉
