DIY giant bubbles for those summer days

Summer days wouldn’t be the same without… GIANT BUBBLES!

I have fond memories of being out in the garden with my dad as young girl, making giant bubbles from fairy liquid diluted with water, a couple of straws and some string.

It would seem the recipes shared around on Pinterest these days have been tweaked a little from when I was a kid, however I imagine the result is essentially the same: giant bubbles that your little ones are guaranteed to love!

The recipe over at Living Well, Spending Less is how to get big bubbles from a small amount of bubble solution and the classic method I remember of 2 straws and some string.

Here is what you need for the bubble mix:

  • 3 Cups water
  • 1/2 Cup dish-washing liquid
  • 1/4 Cup corn flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon golden syrup
  • Straws
  • String

But you know what they say… go big or go home. A visit over to Lindsay and Drew‘s blog educated me on how to go BIG!

Here’s the list…

  • 19 Litres of soft or distilled water
  • 10 Cups dish-washing liquid
  • 2 Cups golden syrup
  • 1 Paddling Pool
  • 1 Hula hoop

They recommend letting the bubble solution sit over night for best results. And here are those awesome results…
