I love this time of year—warm weather, no school, and lots of outside activities! One of our all-time favorites is playing with bubbles. The only issue: kids go through the solution so fast that the cost can start adding up. This simple homemade solution uses just a few supplies that are probably already in your cupboards. Quick and easy summer fun!

Materials Needed:

  • 6 cups hot water
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups dish soap
  • food coloring (optional)


  1. Whisk all ingredients together.
  2. Pour into storage containers (old jars, Tupperware, etc).
  3. If you choose, add food coloring to make colored bubbles!
