How To Make Giant Bubbles
We tried our hand at GIANT BUBBLES!
I’ve always wanted to attempt them, but one thing stood in my way…. Glycerin!
I had no idea where to find it, how to purchase it, or what to do! So, I would always bypass a Giant Bubble recipe.
Where to buy Glycerin?
Guess what? Wilton (cake decorating) makes Glycerin! It jumped right out at me in the craft store!
Local craft stores sell it or it can be found here on Amazon.
Also it can be found in the first aid aisle of most supermarkets.

Giant Bubble Recipe
Materials for GIANT BUBBLES:
What I have found works best but you can use any brand you have available…
**Wilton Glycerin can be found in cake decorating sections of craft stores too.
I used a large dishpan. Slowly mix the ingredients together and avoid getting too much air or small bubbles in it.
Then let it sit for 1-3 hours. The cornstarch is a little funny, but somehow it works!
We used powdered cornstarch. It settles in the bottom, but you just stir it up every so often.
Be patient with the solution, it will work and you’ll love it.
Please note: Bubbles work best on humid or damp days.
DIY Bubble Wand
We used simple straw and string to make our bubble wands.
Just two straws and a length of string tied in a large circle.
Hold onto the straws and dip the entire thing in to the bubble solution.
Slowly pull it out and blow or move through the air.
Another Fun Bubble Trick
Do you love bubbles?
No need to have a bubble wand then. Put some bubble mix in a cup and blow it up with a straw!
I’ll never forget going on vacation one summer as a child with a BIG bubble kit. So much fun!
