Craft Corner: GIANT Bubbles Solution and Wand

By Megan Belegu June 10, 2024

Want to learn how to make giant bubbles that will amaze your kids and impress your neighbors? Look no further! 

Creating giant bubbles requires just a few simple ingredients and supplies and lets you turn any day into a magical bubble extravaganza.

Giant Bubble Solution

  • 12 cups of warm water
  • ½ cup corn syrup (we used Karo®)
  • 1 cup liquid dish soap (we used Dawn®)

Mix the water with the corn syrup, then slowly add the dish soap, stirring gently so you don't create too many bubbles. 

Let the bubble solution sit for at least an hour (the longer, the better). The solution can be stored in an empty gallon-sized milk or water jug.

Giant Bubble Wand

  • 2 wooden dowels, approx. 36 inches long
  • 2 lengths of rope, 100 inches and 65 inches

Tie one end of the 65-inch rope to the end of one dowel, then repeat on the other dowel. Then, tie one end of the 100-inch rope a few inches below the top rope and repeat on the other dowel. This will form a large opening for the bubble to form.

Now it's time to make your giant bubbles!

Pour your giant bubble solution into a bucket. Swirl your giant bubble wand into the solution and slowly raise up your dowels, separating the two sticks as far as they go. 

Start walking slowly and watch the giant bubble form! If there is enough breeze, you may not even need to move!
