Giant Bubble Recipe

Although the summer has come to an end, we have finished off our holidays with these giant bubbles, because let’s face it, you can’t be sad while playing bubbles, especially ones as big as these..

These recipes work best when they have had time to sit for a while, don’t ask me why, they just do.

Make sure you follow our outside activity board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to pin the Pin at the bottom of the page.

You will need:

 For giant bubbles

  •  6 cups water
  •  ½ cup washing up liquid
  •  ½ cup corn flour
  •  1 tbsp baking powder
  •  1 tbsp glycerine

Mix the water and the corn flour together first, try to make sure that it really has all been mixed in (it will eventually settle). Then add all the other ingredients. When you mix them together try not to create any bubbles, so mix it together slowly, then leave it to stand for at least an hour.

Bubbles aren’t just for children!

For stronger bubbles

  •  6 cups of water
  •  2 cups of washing up liquid
  •  1 cup corn syrup

Mix everything together.

When we finally took all our bubble mixtures outside we also took a variety of different tools from the kitchen to make the bubbles with. I had also made up some fantastic geometric shapes to use (for how to make them go here) and some simple bubble wands that we used to make the really big bubbles with.

Simple Bubble Wands

  • 2 straws
  • String

Thread the string through the 2 straws and tie the ends together.  To use them simple hold it by the straws and dip into the bubble mixture.


We all spent a happy hour in the garden making a grand old mess. The mixtures really do get better the more you use them, so don’t despair if they don’t work straight away. My favourite were by far the geometric shapes, they were truly fascinating. YC was in her element trying everything to create the bubbles, whereas EC spent time trying to get the really big ones and then decided he want to go and play elsewhere.

The remainder of the bubble solution has now been stored in some tupperware containers to get out again.
