DIY Bubbles

Updated: Jun 25, 2021

This activity is for preschool and school-age children who love bubbles (who doesn’t??)! By combining different substances, this is a blend of science and fun in the kitchen! Practice your fine motor and mixing skills to create a colorful homemade bubble solution.


4 cups warm water

½ cup sugar

½ dawn dish soap (I used blue!)

bubble wands

mixing bowl

mixing spoon

Ideas for DIY Bubble wand: Straws, pipe cleaners shaped in a circle, cookie cutters, cooking spatulas with holes

Or learn how to make your own bubble want here!

Activity Steps:

Step 1: Gather your materials and set out a workspace! This includes warming up the water, and it might be a good idea to ask an adult for help with this.

Step 2: First, measure out the sugar and water using a measuring cup. Then, combine the sugar and water by mixing until the sugar dissolves completely. (Dissolve means to melt into a liquid, or disappear!). This is a good opportunity to talk to your child about the importance of measuring in cooking and other activities, to ensure things turn out properly.

Step 3: Next, add the soap! Mix well. This is when your solution might start changing colors! Mine turned blue.

Optional but I found it worked well! If you have time, or think of it ahead of time, let your bubble solution sit out for a few hours, or even overnight. This can help the bubbles work a little bit better!

Step 4: Blow your bubbles!! Remember to do this outside, or ask an adult if you can do it inside! Things may get slippery!
