Amazing Unpoppable Bubbles

My little niece loves when we blow bubbles together, but there's always a little frown on her face when she's chasing them and they pop. I was buying her these little tubes of unbreakable bubble solution that worked okay, but not great. Here's a recipe to make your own that are very durable.

Yield: One jar of bubble solutionchild chasing a bubble


  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 1 Tbsp dish soap
  • 1 tsp glycerin
  • 1 jar
  • 1 straw
supplies for project.


  1. Mix all ingredients in jar, shake well, and let sit for a day.
  2. If you have a very clean glove or sock, you can put it on your hand and even catch the bubbles!

Tip: Homemade Faerie Bubbles

Faerie bubbles are very important to every little girl and boy you meet. They bring the magic of the faeries into anyone's heart. When you blow a bubble make a wish before it pops!

Approximate Time: Maybe 5 minutes at the most


  • 4 Tbsp of unscented dish soap
  • 16 oz water
  • 1 tsp of faerie dust
  • 1 Tbsp glycerin


  1. Right before you go to bed make the bubbles, the faerie will come into your house and make them more magical!
  2. Combine everything into a jar. Stir ever so gently. Keep in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Remember this came from an Irish faerie witch!
  3. Faerie dust is important to use, glitter at the dollar store!
  4. Glycerin is cheap and you can get it at craft stores, make sure you tell them it is for a craft.

Question: Homemade Bubbles

I've heard there's a homemade recipe for the liquid used for kid's blowing bubbles. Anyone have it? I've heard it's dish washing liquid and water, but what would the measurements be? Thanks.
Also, has anyone ever purchased an electric bubble machine? I saw one in New Orleans on a upper balcony last year. It was really cool!
