We are making bubbles that grow like a snake at Camp Grandma.   bubble blowing craftThis recipe makes long lasting bubbles that stay firm and won’t break.

Mix 1 cup of distilled water with 2 tablespoons Dawn dishwashing liquid.  Add 1 tablespoon of glycerin, stir and let sit for 24 hours before using.

The bottom of a plastic bottle was cut off, covered with a dry handy wipe and held in place with a rubber band.bubble blower craftbubble blow craft

The boys decided to add food
coloring, which makes some very cool looking bubbles.

The bottom of the bottle was dipped each time into the bubble solution.

The bubbles will hold their form and keep growing as long as you keep blowing.

Unfortunately, their hands will be colorful for a few days.

What soapy liquid isn’t used can be stored in a bottle for another fun time.

We used the required Camp Grandma mess control.  This project was done on a large tray, with newspapers and toweling layered on the dining table.

Next time, we want to try this outside with string or larger hoops than what you buy in stores.  Is there a way to color the bubbles and not their fingers?

  1. I’ve been wanting to try this with my grandkids, but we just didn’t get around to it this summer. Maybe next summer!! : )

    • Thanks so much for your comment.This would also be fun outside. Have you tried making volcanos? Check one of my previous posts. This was a great activity with the kids too.

    • Isn’t it fun making science projects with the grandkids? We did a similar project like the crystals, called erupting volcanos (previous post). Looking forward to sharing more fun grandkid things through our posts with you.
