Skill level: easy. This makes a lot , so you can have it when the kids come to over.


  • 6 cups distilled water
  • 1 cup dish soap (Dawn or Joy works best)
  • 1 tablespoon Glycerin
  • 1/4 cup Corn Syrup


  1. Measure 6 cups of distilled water into one container, then pour 1 cup of dish soap (Dawn or Joy) into the water and slowly stir it until the soap is mixed in. Try not to let foam or bubbles form while you stir.
  2. Measure 1 tablespoon of glycerin or 1/4 cup of corn syrup and add it to the container. Stir the solution until it is mixed together.

grandpa’s thoughts:

You can use the solution right away, but to make even better bubbles, put the lid on the container and let your super bubble solution sit overnight. (Note: If you used "Ultra" dish soap, double the amount of glycerin or corn syrup.)
