How to make soap bubbles!

My son enjoying blowing bubbles for the first time!
Some bubble solution works better than others. Here's the recipe for making great bubbles.

1.Use a container to mix your bubble solution

2. Pour in one part liquid soap

3. Pour in four parts water

4. Pour in about 1/2 teaspoon glycerin per liter of solution. (Food Grade Glycerin is available in drugstores. Glycerol is sweet-tasting and of low toxicity. When diluted with water it is not harmful to consume.)

5. Mix up the solution and Voila!!


  1. what a fantastic idea + thank you for the recipe. I've been hesitating about using a commercial, plastic kit version someone gave us recently but couldn't bear the thought of not doing "bubbles" all summer... and now you've given us a great idea! thank you. can i post this on the NK blog soon?

  2. Summer is made for bubbles!'

  3. Beccijo, absolutely!
