You can make your own bubble solution using things you have at home. We used dish soap, corn syrup, and water. You can always find lots of recipes on-line, but we had fun experimenting and coming up with our own proportions. If you prefer a recipe I will put one at the end of this posting.
Just mix a big squirt of soap with a bit of corn syrup (which makes strong bubbles,) and thin with a touch of water. We have some child's nail scissors in our bowl....it was wonderful for blowing double bubbles.
What can you blow bubbles with? Does it have to be round? We used the top of a plastic soda bottle,
a canning lid ring,
a noise-making tube,
a copper wire Easter egg dipper,
the nail scissors,
and best of all, our fingers.
Now clean up the sticky mess with some warm water.
And save the leftover bubble solution for another sunny day.
Here is a recipe for a vat of bubble solution:
2 cups Joy dishwashing detergent
6 cups water
3/4 cups white Karo corn syrup.
