I have always wanted to learn the how to’s of Making Your Own Mega Bubble Solution.

 

I am not taking about simple bubble solution. I am talking about MEGA Bubble solution. The kind that is durable enough to make massive bubbles.

 

I knew it was possible. I had seen pictures on pinterest and even been to a event or two where mega bubbles were made. But most of the recipes were vastly different  and the premade solution was expensive (especially if I wanted to use them regularly.)

 

I had planned on experimenting with some different recipes this summer to find one that would do what I wanted. As happens too often my sister beat me to the point.

 

One day I got a call from my sister saying how she found the perfect recipe for mega monster bubbles and even learned how to make her own mega bubble wands. She was calling to invite us to come play with bubble in her front yard. Thankfully she lives less than 2 miles away so less than 10 minutes after she ended the call we were at her home ready for fun with bubbles!.

 

She was right this bubble solution recipe worked amazing. I  immediately asked for the recipe (which she was all to happy to give me.)

 

This recipe makes 1 gallon of Mega Bubble Solution which works great with plastic wands and homemade mega bubble wands (one of these days I want to make a triple batch, pour in in my little plastic swim pool, have my kids stand in the middle (in their swim suits) and make bubbles arround my kids using a hula hoop. I am sure the kids will love it!

How to make your own Mega Bubble Solution

Ingredients:

1 tsp  Guargum

2 Tbl  Rubbing Alcohol

15 1/2  Cups Hot Water

2 tsp  Baking Powder

9 1/2 Tbl (1/2 Cup + 1 1/2 Tbl) Dawn (Pro or Ultra) Liquid Detergent

 

Directions:

  • Mix the Guar Gum (which you can find in most health food stores)  with the rubbing alcohol to make a slurry. (This helps to distribute the guar gum without it clumping up or prematurely hydrating)
  • Mix the Guar gum/Alcohol slurry with 5 Cups of Hot Water.
  • Stir water/Slurry mix for a few minutes than let it rest to build up viscosity (which happens as the guar gum hydrates.)
  • Add the remaining 10 1/2 cups of hot water and stir well.
  • Thoroughly mix in Baking Powder & Detergent .
  • Pour into containers. (I like to split one batch between 2 Gallon Ice Cream Buckets)

 

Learn How to Make Your Own Solution (and bubble Wand) for hours of outside fun with your kids this summer!

 

** Making your own mega bubble wand is easy too.

 

Supplies:

2 wood dowels (We used the 3/5 in dowels from Wal-Mart.)

Cotton (cooking, butchers) twine (which you can get at Bed Bath & Beyond

2  1 in (2.5 cm) Small screw eyes. (which we got at Ace Hardware).

bubble wand

Directions:

  • Screw a  screw eye into one end of each dowel.
  • Insert  the cotton twine through the opening of both of the screw eyes
  • Tie the twine in a tight knot making a large circle.

 

To use just dip the wand in the bucket of bubble solution, and lift slowly holding both dowels close together. Then slowly spread the dowels apart making the twine circle look like a smiley face. If there is no breeze then walk backward to create the air current needed to blow the bubbles. It takes a few tries to get used to making bubbles with these wands but the results are fantastic!

  2. WHOA!!!! So much fun!!! Gotta try this with my friends before the summer’s up!!!! Thanks for sharing 😀

  3. Thanks for the great bubble recipe. I can’t wait to make some mega bubbles!

    1. They are a great fall activity too. We made these bubble on a cool windy evening a few weeks ago and it was fun to watch them twist into the sky and break into multiple bubbles.

  4. Thank you for this! I have tried so many bubble solutions in an effort to find strong bubbles, but haven’t had luck.

    1. This one worked amazing! One of the time we used it it was windy and instead of just popping the bubbles split into small bubbles as they flew higher tossed by the wind. It was cool to watch.

  5. This is so fun to do! I never thought of using hot water and putting in rubbing alcohol. Thanks for the recipe!

  6. I really like your post, on December my son was turning 1 years old and i want a bubble show for his birthday i’m glad you post it, super thank you

    1. Oh how fun. We did a bubble party for my youngest’ first birthday back in July. It was a hit.

    1. My 1 year old loved seeing and trying to pop the bubbles, and my 3 and 5 year olds were able to make them much to their delight.

  7. This is an awesome idea indeed and I love how big the bubbles get. I will have to do this with my niece’s kids who are younger and would get such a kick out of it. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I am glad. This recipe really does make the best bubbles. I am sure your granddaughters will love it!

  8. Wow, Do you know what a God breeze is? When a seemingly coincidental occurrence blows your way and you just know it is the answer to prayer. I am a homeschooling Mum challenged to make learning fun when that wasn’t the model I learnt from. Today we played bubbles, and it was great, but my girls are curious critters and they wanted bigger and better. Nothing really worked, I can’t wait to show them your recipe, which I literally stumbled across whilst browsing your site looking for something else. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    1. Lisa, I am sooo glad that my post was in answer to your prayers! Enjoy making the monster bubbles with your kids! Thanks for sharing. You totally made my Day!
