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.

Total Time: 3 minutes

Yield: One jar of bubble solution

Supplies:

  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 1 Tbsp dish soap
  • 1 tsp glycerin
  • 1 jar
  • 1 straw

Steps:

  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!

I'd like to try this, but am unclear--does the "non sweetened jello" refer to the Knox-type unflavored gelatin or to sugar free Jello (i.e. sweetened with artifical sweeteners)? It sounds very easy and my kids are running out of things to do...

Editor's Note: Sorry, it's just regular jello. We changed it but were wrong.

For the quarter cup of jello, is that the powder or prepared jello with water in it, etc?

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!

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!

There are a lot of recipes for bubbles. Most are a combination of dish soap, water and glycerin(avail in drugstroe) to stabilize the bubbles. Mix and allow to "age" for a few days. recipes will tell you how long. I mix them in an old 2 liter soda bottle-clearly labeled and if you have little ones, stored out of reach.

I bought a small bubble machine from Wal-Mart for my day care kids. They LOVE it! It's called "Kids Bubble Generator". It uses a lot of batteries, though, so get rechargeables!

Pretty Bubbles. Place all ingredients in a small bottle with lid. Give a gentle stir to mix. Be sure to label it, too. . .

Servings: 1 Combine ingredients and pour into an unbreakable bottle. To blow bubbles, experiment using plastic straws, pipe cleaners formed into loops, strawberry baskets from grocery store, spoons with holes in them and other items you think of.
