Homemade Bubbles

Homemade bubbles are very simple to prepare - and it's easy to produce lots of them at very little cost, using basic ingredients that you have at home!

If you save the containers and wands from the sets that have been given to the kids when they have used up all the bubble mixture, you can refill it with your own bubble mix.

What you need to make your Homemade Bubbles

  • 2 cups dishwashing detergent
  • 6 cups water
  • 3/4 cup light Karo syrup or Golden Syrup
  • mixing bowl
  • bubble mix container and a bubble wand


Gather all of your ingredients together and prepare your work space.

Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. 

And you are done...

If you store the mixture in the fridge it will last longer.

If you don't have any old wands lying around you can make your own using some craft wire or you can try using items like strawberry baskets and fly swatters as unusual but effective bubble wands!
