Schools out!! Hooray! Now, the question for moms is, “What can I do to keep my kids occupied?? They get bored so quickly!” Here are two fun and simple bubble recipes that I tried. Both work. Both are easy and use typical household ingredients.
My little ones always love bubbles, and we are constantly running out of bubble solution. Since these were so simple, I thought to give them a try here.
Here are the two recipes:
3 cups water
1/2 c. dish soap (I used Great Value brand)
1/2 c. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. baking powder
Stir together. Try not to create bubbles. Let sit for an hour.
2 c. water
1/3 c. dish soap
1/4 c. sugar
To be honest, I couldn’t tell the difference. I did notice that Bubble #1 left a cornstarch silt on the bottom. I don’t really know what cornstarch and baking powder did to the solution, but it worked!
Both bubbles made lots and lots of bubbles. My little ones had a blast using them all up! Plus, they smelled yummy! My driveway was bubble-filled!
Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a bubble? Especially when being chased by a little one? Well, I did my best!
If you want a quick and simply activity to occupy your kids, whip up some of these bubbles and send them outside. Isn’t that where they should be right now??
