Summer calls for lots of outdoor fun! If you’re on the lookout for outside activities, try making these gigantic bubbles! This activity is sure to be loads of fun for you and your friends!
*Be sure to ask an adult for help to make the bubble wand and mixture.
- 2 wooden dowels
- Eye bolts
- 2 cups dish soap
- 4 tbsp glycerin
- 2 tbsp baking powder or corn starch
- Wide bucket
What to do:
- Note: Make sure an adult helps with this part of the activity! Drill a hole into one end of each dowel and screw in the eye bolts. Cut two different lengths of string (about two metres and one metre long). Feed the short string through the eye bolts and tie them tight. Then take the long string and add a washer to weigh it down. Then tie that string to the eye bolts as well. Tie a tiny knot where the washer hangs so it doesn’t get knotted.
- For the bubble solution, mix the dish soap, baking powder or corn starch, and glycerin in your bucket. Add lukewarm water and stir.
- Bubble time! Dip the wand into the mixture (make sure the entire string gets covered) and gently pull it out. Move your wand through the air to create giant bubbles. Yay!
This is a great way to spend time outdoors on a sunny day! If you try this fun activity out, let us know in the comments below how it went.
