Homemade Bubble Solution

Making your own homemade bubble solution is not only simple and cost-effective, but it also allows you to create endless fun for everyone at your bubble-themed party. Here’s a basic recipe to get you started, along with some tips to make your bubbles even better:

Basic Homemade Bubble Solution


  • 4 cups of warm water
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid


  1. Dissolve the Sugar: Pour the warm water into a large container. Add the sugar and stir until it’s completely dissolved. The sugar helps to strengthen the bubbles, making them last longer and less likely to pop.
  2. Add Dish Soap: Gently mix in the dishwashing liquid. Stir slowly and try to avoid creating foam or bubbles while mixing.
  3. Let It Settle: Let your bubble solution sit for at least an hour before using. This waiting period allows the mixture to blend nicely, leading to stronger and bigger bubbles.

Tips for Super Bubbles

  • Glycerin or Corn Syrup: For even stronger bubbles, add 1 tablespoon of glycerin or corn syrup to the mixture. Both ingredients help to make the bubbles thicker and more resilient.
  • Use High-Quality Dish Soap: The brand and type of dish soap can really affect how well your bubbles perform. Experiment with different brands to see which creates the best bubbles.
  • Distilled Water: Using distilled water instead of tap water can sometimes improve your bubble quality, as it doesn’t contain impurities that might interfere with bubble formation.

Giant Bubble Solution

If you’re aiming to make giant bubbles, here’s a modified recipe:


  • 6 cups of distilled water
  • 1 cup of dishwashing liquid
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder (not baking soda)
  • 1 tablespoon of glycerin or corn syrup


  1. Combine Ingredients: Mix all the ingredients gently in a large container. As with the basic solution, try to avoid creating foam.
  2. Rest the Solution: Allow the solution to rest overnight before using it. This helps the mixture meld together, creating an ideal consistency for giant bubbles.

Yummy Bubble Themed Treats

No bubble party is complete without some bubbly treats. Think bubble gum flavored ice cream, soda pop cupcakes, and gummy bubbles. You could also serve berry blue Jell-O in clear cups topped with whipped cream to look like bubbles. Here are some more fun ideas;

1. Bubble Gum Cupcakes

Whip up a batch of your favorite cupcakes, vanilla or bubble gum flavored works great. Use light blue frosting to mimic the color of bubbles and sprinkle some crushed bubble gum pieces on top. You can even add a small bubble gum ball on top for decoration!

2. Soda Pop Gummies

Serve a variety of soda-flavored gummy candies. These not only taste great but also add a fun, fizzy twist that aligns with the bubble theme. Arrange them in little bowls or jars around the party area for easy snacking.

3. Bubble Jell-O Cups

Make blueberry-flavored Jell-O in clear cups and let it set. Before serving, top with a dollop of whipped cream to resemble bubbles. For an extra sparkle, sprinkle some edible glitter or white pearl sprinkles on top.

4. Bubble Waffles
