We're Forever Blowing Bubbles

We love blowing bubbles at our house.  Who doesn't love blowing hundreds of bubbles and watching them burst around you or fly away across the neighborhood.  I've often wondered what my neighbors think when they see the results of our bubble blowing extravaganzas as the bubbles drift across their yards. The kids get such a kick out of chasing and popping the bubbles, too.
Up until now, my very favorite bubble solution was the kind from Gymboree. Their bubble blower is the absolute best as well. The only problem? When we ran out of our one and only bottle, I didn't have time to run out to the store, nor did I want to spend more money. As it turns out, I had everything I needed to make fantastic bubbles right in my kitchen and it was really easy, too.

Here's the recipe I went with:

Fantastic Bubble Solution
via Hellobee

Liquid Dish Soap
Light Corn Syrup
Bottle or Container to store Bubble Solution

To make the bubble solution, you will need:
2 1/2 cups hot water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup liquid dish soap

Add 1/2 cup light corn syrup to the hot water and whisk well until it is dissolved.  Slowly add the 1/2 cup liquid dish soap, and whisk well.
Pour the bubble solution into individual bottles or a container with a lid.  Let the solution rest for a few hours before using it for the best results.  (Though we used it immediately with pretty good results as well)

I didn't fuss with making anything pretty, but this bubble solution and makeshift blowers still did a fabulous job. The solution works awesome with my Gymboree blower as well. Yay!

Have a Happy Day!
