Make Your Own Bubble Solution

Make Your Own Bubble Solution Header Image


  • Pipe cleaner
  • Bowl or cup
  • Spoon

Bubble Solution:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid


  1. Stir bubble solution ingredients together in a bowl or cup until well combined.
  2. Take your pipe cleaner and bend one end into a loop. Attach the end of the loop to the pipe cleaner, so it looks like a bubble wand.
  3. Dip the loop of the wand into your solution and blow through the loop to make bubbles!

Alternatively, you can use the following items as bubble wands as well: cookie cutters, straws, a wiffle ball or other household items with holes.
