I have never met a kid of any age that doesn't like bubbles, well except for a few teenagers. The pure joy on their little faces when they actually blow a bubble and get to chase and pop them, its priceless until the bubbles run out and the tantrums begin. 

So why not make your own endless supply of easy to make homemade bubbles, all from the contents of your home. Make them with your little ones and keep them entertained while they learn, play, create and have a lot of fun!. 

What you need:

  • 4 cups of warm water
  • 1/2 cup of sugar or 1 tbsp of baking powder or 1/2 cup of corn starch (whichever you have)
  • 1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid
  • Your LITTLE bare henni  Play Mats and Smock Bibs to stop your littles ones getting solution all over their clothes and the floor. 

How to make the bubbles: 

  • Combine warm water and the sugar/baking powder/corn starch using a whisk until it dissolves. 
  • Add the dishwashing soap and continue to whisk. Don't whisk to fast as your don't want the bubbles or foam to form. 
  • Use straight away or let your bubbles sit. The longer you let the solution sit the better the bubbles.

Please ensure you supervise your little ones when making and playing with the bubbles as dishwashing liquid does contain chemicals that should not be digested. 

Homemade Bubble Blowers:

Here are a few objects you might have around the house to make a DIY homemade bubble blower. 

  • Plastic bottle - cut the bottom off, dip the large open end into the solution and blow into the pouring end.
  • Plastic cup - punch a hole into the enter of the bottom of the cup. dip the large open area into the solution and blow into the small hole you made. 
  • Pipe cleaners - these are great to make into any shape you like, just make sure the ends meet up and a secure and no gap is left. Keep a section or twist a handle on the shape you made so you can easily hold your bubble wand. 
  • Plastic drinking straws - bunch a pile of straws together in your hand and tape around the straws with tape of any kind to secure the straws in place. Use one end of the straws to dip into the solution and use the other end to blow into. These bubbles should be small and fast flowing. 

Remember to to have fun, take photos (tag @littlebarehenni) and enjoy the messy moments with your little ones.
