Seize the Summer Challenge Day 11: Bubble Fun

Posted by   + Show Post

Have you ever made big bubbles with your kids? Today's challenge is to make your own! 

Here are is one recipe to help you get started! Then you can use a hula hoop, or make your own bubble wand.

Recipe:
12 cups water
1 cup dish soap
1 cup corn starch
2 tablespoons baking powder

Place all ingredients in a bucket and stir gently (not creating bubbles!). Let it sit for one hour and enjoy the fun!

Create Your Own Bubble Wand:

  • Use a hula hoop.
  • Use a metal coat hanger and twist into a circle with handle.
  • Use string and straws to create a wand.
  • Use the plastic that comes around a six pack of aluminum cans.
  • Use your hands, putting your thumbs and forefingers together to create a diamond.

Nope - never made it. But I sure do spend a fortune on bubbles! So I need to see about making them.
