Project

Make Bigger Bubbles

Make a giant bubble wand and a big batch of bubble solution with household items you probably already have. In a few minutes, you'll be bubble-ready!

Materials

  • Cotton twine drinking
  • Straws
  • Scissors
  • Liquid dishwashing soap
  • Light corn syrup
  • Shallow tub

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Thread cotton twine through two straws (cut off any flexible section of the straws), and bend to make a rectangle as shown; knot, and trim excess.

  2. Step 2

    Make the bubble solution: Pour 10 cups water, 4 cups dishwashing soap, and 1 cup corn syrup into a shallow tub. Stir to combine.

  3. Step 3

    Keeping blower slack, dip in solution and lift out. Then pull it tight, and blow (you may need to practice a bit).
