Make Your Own Bubbles and Bubble Wands
Corn Syrup Bubbles
- 2 1/2 quarts water
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup clear liquid dish detergent (Joy and Dawn work best)
- food coloring (optional)
- Gently mix the water and corn syrup in a large container.
- Add the liquid dish detergent and lightly stir.
- Do not over mix, or mixture will get too bubbly.
- Solution can be easily doubled or tripled.
- If making colored bubbles, mix in a couple of drops of food coloring. The homemade bubbles can be used immediately or kept for a couple weeks if stored in a covered, airtight container.
- 4 cups warm water
- 1 /2 cup sugar
- 1 /2 cup blue Dawn dish soap
- Whisk the sugar into the warm water until
the sugar dissolves.
- Whisk in the soap. Add the dish soap and
whisk to combine.
- Let sit. Letting the homemade bubbles sit for a couple of hours or even overnight helps them work a bit better, but is not strictly necessary.
- Blow bubbles.

- You can create a wide variety of shapes using a pipe cleaner, just make sure you keep a small section as a handle.
