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!
A tub of bubble mix
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

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…
Hours of fun! :D
