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!

  • Cotton twine drinking

  • Straws

  • Scissors

  • Liquid dishwashing soap

  • Light corn syrup

  • Shallow tub


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