Make Giant Kiddie Pool Bubbles

I have always wanted to try these giant kiddie pool bubbles, and this summer we finally did it! If you have never tried it, you must! It was such a blast!

Here’s my little guy giving it a try:

To do this, you need the perfect bubble solution, a hard plastic kiddie pool and a hula hoop.

For the Bubble Solution you need:

– 5 Gallons of Water
– 10 Cups of Dawn dish soap (regular not antibacterial)

I found a few things to be helpful:

– Let this solution sit overnight. For some reason this helps.
– The less foam you make, the better your bubbles will be. Too much foam is the enemy to giant bubbles. Try to keep the splashing to a minimal.

That’s it!

Don’t forget the bubble beards. :)

This might be the funnest you will have in your backyard all summer!

Speaking of summer, don’t forget to crank your favorite summer soundtrack to add to the fun!

    I wish you had been here yesterday.
    We did big bubbles, but nothing like that and we had a little trouble with the wind. GREAT BUBBLES!!

    This is the easiest recipe. 2 questions, ? How far in advance can I prepare. Some recipes call for 24hrs in advance… I was wondering if it can be done 2 days in advance.
    ? Did you try adding glycerine at all and what would it do if added. p.s. I found some 2.5 gallon water dispensers from store that will hold the additional 5 cups each of Dawn to have 2 even batches to be stored in advance.
