You might have never thought about a recipe for bubble soap, and it may seem strange that we suggest the need for one, but your kids will have a lot of fun with this bubble soap. The most brilliant bubbles are produced from a solution of water, dish soap, and corn syrup or glycerin. Alone, dish soap is too thick to make the large floating spheres we love to see when we blow soap through a bubble wand.
Combined at the right ratio, soap and water produce thinner, more “flexible” bubbles that hold a greater amount of air (thus producing a bigger bubble). The addition of corn syrup or glycerin is to make bubbles that last just a bit longer, once they are blown, and which really catch the light in swirls of color.
