My kids love blowing bubbles, so we had to give this giant bubble recipe a try! I recreated a wand that we found at the toy store and used the recipe from the package for the bubbles — we had so much fun!
Giant Bubble Recipe
Here’s what you need to make a bubble wand for your giant bubbles:
- 1/2-inch PVC pipe cut 3 feet long
- 2 1/2-inch PVC caps
- 3/4-inch PVC connector
Slide the PVC connector onto the pipe and add the caps to each end. Tie one end of the yarn to the top of the pipe, then string the washer onto the yarn and thread it through the connector.
Bring the yarn back to the top of the pipe and tie it in place to create a long triangle.
The PVC connector will slide up to the top of the wand when placed in the bubble solution, then you can pull it down slowly to open the wand. Once a bubble has formed, slide the connector back to the top of the wand to release the bubble.
Now, let’s make our Giant Bubble Recipe!
- 12 cups water
- 1 cup dish soap
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 2 Tbsp baking powder
Mix the ingredients together in a large bucket and allow to sit for at least an hour. The longer it sits, the better!
Dip your bubble wand into the bubble solution, then slide the connector out to create a triangle. Watch the big bubbles form!
We had so much fun making these giant bubbles!
