Giant Bubble Recipe

 

Make the biggest homemade bubbles that you've ever seen!

Rox would like you to know that you really can make the biggest bubbles ever with this homemade giant bubble recipe, but the weather is very important for making the best bubbles. He doesn’t want to disappoint you, so it is best to wait for the perfect weather conditions.

Before you make the bubble mixture you will need two things:

  1. THE PERFECT WEATHER FOR GIANT BUBBLES: You might think that a hot, sunny day would be best for an outdoor activity like this, but believe it or not, it’s best to wait until it’s overcast and a cloudy day, high humidity and a gentle breeze will make the conditions perfect. If it is too hot and sunny, or too windy, the weather will make your bubbles dehydrate, which will cause them to pop too quickly. If you can’t wait for the perfect weather conditions, make your bubbles in the shade and if there is no wind you will need to hold your arms high in the air and walk slowly backwards.
  2. A GIANT BUBBLE WAND: You can buy huge bubble wands but Rox thinks it is really easy to make your own. Take two drinking straws and a length of string 6 to 8 times the length of one straw. Thread the string through the straws and tie a knot and that’s it – you’re ready to make giant bubbles!

 

INGREDIENTS FOR GIANT BUBBLES:

6 cups of water
½ cup of washing up liquid
½ cup of cornflour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. glycerine

 

What to do

  1. Dissolve the cornflour in the water and mix well
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients being careful not to create too much froth
  3. Let the mixture sit for at least an hour, stirring occasionally when you see the corn flour settling at the bottom
Some of the cornflour may not dissolve completely and could settle at the bottom of the mixture, don’t worry this will not affect the quality of your bubbles.

Rox wants you to know that the more bubbles you make the better the mixture will get making bigger bubbles! He doesn’t want you to worry if the first few bubbles pop quickly, the big bubbles will come and very soon, they will break free and float very high in the sky, just like he does.
