This step is only if you have some patience or think to make the solution ahead of time. Letting the homemade bubbles sit for a couple of hours or even overnight helps them work a bit better, but is not strictly necessary.

Easy peasy, don’t you think?

You can also add 1/4 cup of vegetable glycerine to your homemade bubble solution if you like. And/or 1/2 cup of corn starch. And/or 1 tablespoon of baking powder. Those each make the bubbles work just a tad better. But this is the basic recipe and it works just fine on it’s own.

We usually simply have a big bowl or two of the bubble solution out and available to the kids. You can also hand individual mason jars with bubble solution to the kids. Or re-use one of those no-spill bubble cups for your homemade bubbles.
