Mega-Bubble Solution Recipe
Liquid dish soap
Glycerin or corn syrup
Wire clothes hanger
Yarn or string
Tape (electrical, duct, etc.)
Large pizza pan or cookie sheet with sides
Mix a big squirt of dish soap with a little bit of glycerin or corn syrup in a liquid measuring cup. Add water and stir. Pour mixture into a pizza pad or other large shallow pan. Add water up to edge of pan.
Bend a wire clothes hanger into a diamond or circle shape. Wrap yarn or string around the wire and secure loose ends with tape.
Dip the wand in the solution, making sure that the yarn/string gets completely covered with the mixture. Remove the bubble wand and let some of the mixture drip off. Make bubbles by moving the wand through the air.
And don’t forget to have fun!
