DIY – Bubble Mix for Kids

Easy Homemade Bubble Mix

There are many recipes out there for homemade bubble mix, but this one is my favorite.  You don’t need glycerine or corn syrup, and the bubbles are awesome!  I recommend using an old laundry soap container with a dispenser on it, and attaching a bag to the side with the bubble wands in it.


12 cups water

1 cup dish soap (blue Dawn is the best)

1 cup cornstarch

2 TBSP baking powder

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, I put HALF of this recipe in my mixing bowl, stirred it a bit, poured it into the laundry soap dispenser, then made the second half.  An important note: the mix ends up looking really watery, not the syrupy-type of texture that store-bought bubbles are like…but we have always been amazed at the bubbles produced.
