Day #190 – Bubble Refill Station & Homemade Bubble Recipe

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest
I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew immediately that it would be perfect. My children have the habit of having bubbles in their hands, and they reach over to pick something up or chase the bubbles, then they accidentally dump out all of the bubbles. This idea came from La La’s Home Daycare.
 
I had also pinned a bubble recipe from My Frugal Adventures.


Homemade Bubbles
1 cup water
2 Tbsp Light Corn Syrup
4 Tbsp dish soap


Mix all ingredients together in a large container. I did 10 times the recipe for our bubble refill station.

It took a little bit of effort to hose off the patio because it just made more bubbles. So, I would recommend doing it over the lawn. That’s the only advice I have because I love having this refill station available to the kids. Who doesn’t love bubbles?

  1. Yes, who doesn’t love bubbles. I was wondering whether the corn syrup would attract ants….

    • It’s a really good question, and I can’t say for sure. I can tell you that we do have sugar ants that find their way to the patio when there is food around. I haven’t seen any around the couple of places we have kept the bubble station. However, after the kids were done, my husband just hosed down the area, so it might have prevented anything like that. Thanks for stopping by. That’s a good thought.

    I would recommend Dawn brand dish soap and substituting the sugar based ingredient with either gelatin or glycerine

  9. What exactly is the corn syrup/ gelatin for?
