Making Giant Bubbles

Both use commonly available supplies, are easy to make and then provide hours of bubble blowing the biggest bubbles possible.

My kids love blowing bubbles, so we had to give this giant bubble mixture a try. The giant bubble wand was recreated from a bubble wand that we found at the toy store and the bubble solution recipe is one of our favorites.

How to Make Giant Homemade Bubbles

Let’s start with the giant bubble wand! What makes this so effective is that there is a lot of surface area for the bubble solution to adhere to and the wind does the rest. I like that even though this item is giant when playing making massive bubbles, it takes up very little space in the playroom or garage.

PVC pipe can easily be found at your local home improvement store, hardware store or online. I love building toys out of PVC pipe because it is like a large building set to make your own homemade bubble wands and each kid can have their own bubble wands the way they like them!

Supplies Needed for Each Bubble Wand

Directions to Make Giant Bubble Wand for Bigger Bubbles

Step 1

Slide the PVC connector onto the pipe and add the caps to each end. The caps will help keep the end of the dowel (your pvc pipe) solid.

Step 2

Tie one end of the yarn to the top of the pipe, then string the washer onto the yarn and thread it through the connector.

Step 3

Bring the yarn back to the top of the pipe and tie it in place to create a long triangle.

The PVC connector will slide up to the top of the wand when placed in the bubble solution, then you can pull it down slowly to open the wand. Once a bubble has formed, slide the connector back to the top of the wand to release the bubble.

Now, let’s make our Giant Bubble Recipe!

Homemade Giant Bubbles Solution Recipe

There are a lot of good homemade bubble recipe ideas and we have tried a bunch of different recipes, but I like this one because it uses simple ingredients I already have at the house and it really does make the best bubbles that are strong bubbles with longer time before bubble pops and of course, BIG!

Directions for Homemade Giant Bubble Recipe

Step 1

Mix the ingredients for the soap bubbles together in a large bucket and allow to sit for at least an hour.

The longer it sits, the better. What an easy bubble solution to make!

Each child will dip their own bubble wand into a container of bubble solution, then slide the connector out to create a triangle. Watch the big bubbles form!

It is so much fun to see the kids with big bubble wands making their own giant bubbles. It was a really fun activity that the kids spent a long time in the backyard playing and creating tons of bubbles from the simple bubble recipe.

The better bubbles come in a little different shapes when created by the cotton string. Younger kids will need a little help with the coordination of making the large circle at first, but soon they will make great bubbles too! A small breeze is helpful, but this summer bucket list activity for best results is not a windy day idea!
