How to Make Giant Bubbles at Home

A great activity for a rainy day or a sunny afternoon outside!


  • 6 Cups Water
  • 1/2 cup Dish Soap*
  • 1/2 cup Cornstarch
  • 1 TBSP Baking POWDER
  • 1 TBSP Glycerin**

*Dawn Dish Soap (blue)

**Wilton Glycerin found in cake decorating.

Use a large dishpan.  Slowly mix the ingredients together and avoid getting too many bubbles in it.  Then let it sit for 1-3 hours. The cornstarch is a little funny, but somehow it works!  Be patient with the solution, it will work and you’ll love it.

Bubble Wands

You can use simple straw and string to be your bubble wands.  Just two straws and a length of string tied between the two.
Another fun trick
Put some in a bubble mix in a cup and blow it up with a straw!
