Giant Bubble Recipe—Skip To My Lou

You guys…today is our very last guest poster for our Summer Series (click on the link to see all our past guests)! I hope you have enjoyed having all of these talented bloggers sharing some of their best summer ideas with you! I know I sure have and it sure was nice to take a little break this summer from posting so that I could spend some quality time with my family.

Today I am so happy to have Cindy from Skip to my Lou here.  She is one of the very first bloggers I started following when I discovered the world of blogging after I had been blogging for a while.  She is also a dear friend in real life.  I look up to her in so many ways.  Be sure to check out Cindy’s amazing site! You will be so glad that you did!


Hi everyone! My name is Cindy and I blog at Skip to my Lou. I blog about simple crafts, sewing, crochet and recipes. I hope you will come visit me if you are looking for more simple crafts and activities. We are having a blast at our house with these giant bubbles. They are super easy to make! You probably have all the supplies in your kitchen right now!

Giant-Bubble-recipe-skiptomylou.org_ First make your own homemade bubble wand with some string and straws.

Cut about two yards of string. Thread the straws onto the string and fasten the ends of the string with a knot. Move the knot around until it is hidden inside one of the straws. Straws with out the bendy part work best!

Mix up your own own homemade bubble solution.

Giant Bubble Recipe

3 Cups water

1/2 Cup Dawn Dish-washing Liquid

1/4 Cup corn starch

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

1 Tablespoon Corn Syrup

Mix water, Dawn liquid detergent, corn starch, baking powder, corn syrup.Place bubble mixture in a container large enough for the straws to fit inside. Dip the bubble wand into the solution and gently bring it out of the solution one side at a time. It will take quite a few tries until the mixture will start making bubbles. Be patient, it will be worth it.

Slowly pull the string apart.

Slowly walk backwards allowing giant bubbles to form. FUN!

We found it took some time to get the bubbles to work. The motion of our hands in the solution seemed to make it better and better. One it started working it was amazing. We found a few days later the solution didn’t work well.

    This is so cool! Thanks for the recipe. I have a 7 month old baby girl and can’t wait until next summer when we could make these. :)
