For June’s issue of Sandbox Press I decided to do a simpler project that any Mom or Dad can do with the kids. Bubbles are super easy to make and you can use them as a refill for your bubble bottles or put them in a ball jar or other resealable container.

Homemade Bubbles Supplies

The supplies are simple: 1 1/2 cup warm water, 1/2 cup dishwashing soap, and 2 teaspoons of sugar. For your bubble wand, you can try any sort of bendable wire or other utensil with natural holes. Here are our wands:

The directions are simple as well: mix it all together in a large cup or the container you are storing it in. Try not to over mix but make sure all the sugar is melted.

Then comes to the fun: blow bubbles!

After a while, we got the hang of it and blew lots of bubbles!

Now go outside and have some fun!
