Have Fun with Bubbles

There are many ways to have fun with bubbles. I have an aunt who is a school teacher and every summer during summer school she would have fun with bubbles. There are so many lessons that can be taught through bubbles.

  • Using a piece of paper create a cone tape the small opening so it keeps its shape. Allow the wide end to sit in bubble solution for a few seconds. Then blowing on the cone like a horn blow the bubbles You may have to flick the paper a bit to allow the bubbles to fly.
  • Make super strong bubbles using this recipe from
    1 package unflavored gelatin
    1 cup just-boiled water
    1 1/2 to 2 ounces glycerin (available in the skin care aisle or at health food stores)
    8 1/2 ounces Johnson’s Baby Shampoo
    Stir the gelatin into the hot water until it’s dissolved. Mix in the glycerin and shampoo, gently stirring. The solution will gel as it cools.
  • Make your own bubble wands. Look around the house and find things that would be fun to make bubbles. For example a six pack holder can make multiple bubbles, your hand making an o.k. sign, create a bubble blower out of pipe cleaners.


  1. Great Ideas! My toddler LOVES bubbles and it is such a cheap form of entertainment. (I love that bubble photo, Beautiful!)

  2. the glycerin is what makes the bubbles so super-don't leave it out or not add enough!
