Summer Camp At Home Craft: Giant Bubbles!

Summer Camp at Home Crafts

Summertime and bubbles…. two things that are meant to be together. I had been buying the one gallon containers of bubble solution at Target, but after watching too many of them get tipped over on the driveway spilling the contents into the grass…..  I had kind of taken a break from bubbles. (And yes, I know better than to give my young ones the full gallon container, and had been using it to fill their small bubble bottles….  but those darn kids will climb up the garage walls to get at what they want…  which of course is the big bottle of bubbles!)

And then I saw this post on how to make giant bubbles over at Tatertots and Jello and I felt inspired to give it another try!

I used duct tape to attach the two strings to the dowel rods (rather than using a Dremel to attach rings). The bubble solution worked very well…  even though I used regular old dishwashing liquid (because my grocery story didn’t have any on sale that was clear and fragrance-free!)

It took the kids plenty of practice before they started mastering the technique…

And ours never got quite to the size of the ones from the tutorial….  but we still thought that they were pretty cool!Momof6 Make Your Own Giant Bubbles3 Summer Camp At Home Craft: Giant Bubbles!
