How to Make Homemade Bubbles
Mix the dawn dish soap, water, and glycerin together in the pan. If you don’t have any glycerin you can substitute corn syrup instead as it’s a little more common to find around the house.
If you have gelatin, the clear kind not the flavored jello kind, you can add it to the solution too. This will only add to it, but if you don’t have any that’s ok too.
Mix it all together and test it out. You can always add more dish soap if you feel like the homemade bubbles solution needs it.

Make a Bubble Wand
There are so many different things from around the house you can use to make your bubbles. I’m a fan of using:
- Slotted spoons
- Canning jar lids
If you don’t have any of these things at your place get creative. Anything with a hole in it can be used to blow bubbles.
To take the creativity to another level grab the pipe cleaners you put aside earlier and shape them into circles, hearts, moons; whatever you want!
