Bubble Solution:

  • 1 cup Dawn Ultra dish soap
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon guar gum
  • 1 teaspoon alcohol
  • 1 teaspoon gylcerine
  • 12 cups very hot water

Bubble wands:

  • 6 wooden dowels found at JoAnns
  • 10 yards cotton rope found at JoAnns
  • 3 heavy washers
  • 6 eye hooks


To make the bubble solution:

  • In a very large container, mix together all ingredients except the water. Ensure all of the powder is fully incorporated.
  • Get tap water flowing as hot as possible and add hot water to soap solution 2 cups at a time. Stir solution to fully mix but try not to over mix such that you create bubbles.
  • You can use immediately or save for future use.
  • To make the bubble wands:
  • Screw an eye hook into the end of each dowel.
  • Cut the rope into three 10 foot pieces. This is a good length for adults. If you're making a wand for a child, you might want to cut 1-2 feet off the length.
  • String a washer onto the rope and then thread it through two of the eye hooks. Tie a knot to secure. In other words, when the dowels are held out, you want the rope to make a triangle with the eye hooks in the top two corners and the washer as the bottom corner (see dipping photo above).

To make your giant bubbles:

  • Fully submerse rope into solution. Lift straight up and allow excess solution to drip off back into container.
  • Pull dowels apart from each other such that rope forms a triangle shape. Either let the breeze blow the bubble or walk backwards. Close the dowels together to close bubble. Proceed to pop the bubble! Repeat.
