It’s the end of Spring, and Summer is pretty much here! In this post, I’m sharing with you how to make non-toxic bubble solution & wand.
Getting Outside This Summer
Now that summertime is pretty much here, we have been spending a lot of our days outdoors with the kiddos; playing in the dirt, going to the park, and blowing bubbles. Which is what I am sharing with you today, how to make non-toxic bubble solution & wand, its a super quick and easy recipe!
I have been so inspired by the 1000 Hours Outside trend, and I definitely have made it a goal to acheive something like that with the kiddos this summer! Doing simple fun activites outdoors, like blowing bubbles, definately is a great way to start!
Let’s Get Started
This bubble solution is perfect for making in batches and keeping on hand. Which is why I’ve come to realize, I don’t want to keep buying bubbles/bubble solution from the store when I can easily make my own, that I know has toxin-free ingredients.
What You Will Need
- Non-toxic Dish Soap
- Corn Syrup
- Measuring Cups
- Empty Large Glass Bottle (I used an old glass juice bottle)
- Small Glass Bottles w/ Seal
- Wooden Spoon
- Wire Cutters
- Sticks or Dowel Rod
How to Make Non-Toxic Bubble Solution
Begin by combining 3 cups of water, 1/3 cup corn syrup, and 1 cup dish soap, mixing well until combined.
Next, using a funnel pour solution into glass bottles with seals or jars of choice.
It’s that simple! Keep stored indoors.
How to Make a Bubble Wand
Making a bubble wand is pretty simple. I’ve seen people make them out of pipe cleaners and other misc. supplies around the house. I wanted ours to be nature inspired and I loved how Erin’s turned out, and attempted one at home. Although, hers is wayy cuter! Here is how I made mine:
I simply made a circle with the wire, and shaped it with the wire cutters. You could get creative with this and make different shapes.
Lastly, I attatched it to a smooth stick, making sure the length was long enough for the jar. I also added a small dap of hot glue to dull the edges of the wire on the stick.
