Super giant bubbles are addicting to young and old. Here is a tutorial on how- to make your own “Super Giant Bubbles Kit”.
Kids would love to receive this as a gift or even help make the kit. I made the simple drawstring sack to hold the bubble kit supplies. The bubble recipe is shown below and I share the **secret** ingredient to help make the giant bubbles last longer.
My teenage daughter enjoyed herself while making these super giant bubbles in our backyard. Like I said, “fun for all ages”! The colors and shapes produced are mesmerizing!
cut into two lengths one 8 feet and one 4 feet
I used Dawn (blue) dish washing soap. The recipe is cloudy at first but gets clear after a day or so. Stir occasionally to help dissolve the cornstarch. If you want to have giant bubbles, here is a crucial part of the recipe mix a tube (3 oz.) of personal lubricant (yes, that is correct) with 1 cup of very warm water – mix well. After it cooled I added the water/lubricant to the above recipe. The lubricant was purchased at the dollar store. This recipe is the exact solution we used to make the giant bubbles (shown above) including the addition of personal lubricant : )

Thanks for hosting! I love the bubble idea. My daughter adores bubbles, so I may have to try to make a bubble kit for her. 🙂 Sorry if I got carried away on the links…I could have gone on and on with great summer ideas, but I stopped at four.

The bubble kit idea is so great … how fun for a little summer gift.
And I love this idea for a linky party. Thanks for hosting!
I liked Shabby Apple on Facebook!
Hard decision, but I think I like Park Fountains in Mustard the best!

Can't wait for the how-to to use this wand. Looks super fun!
Love to see the how to on the bubble wand.

I made the solution for the giant bubbles, (followed the directions exactly), but the cornstarch never did dissolve, even after LOTS of stirring. Any suggestions from anyone? Such a cute idea…hope I can make it work! Thanks!
Hii, I had the same problem with my cornstarch not dissolving. Any ideas?
My corn starch doesn't dissolve either, and I've been stirring every couple of hours. I tried making little bubbles (with a wand from a bottle of bubbles) while the corn starch was settled, and then again after I stirred it and the bubbles seem about the same either way. I feel like I wasted corn starch though.
My corn starch never fully dissolved – it wasn't a problem. However, as long as you add the secret ingredient (personal lubricant) the recipe works great for large bubbles. This is a recipe for giant bubbles. It might work for small bubbles – not sure! Humidity plays a big factor when creating giant bubbles. Mornings and evenings usually have higher humidity.
Hum… this did not work for me at all. I followed the exact recipe, and let it sit overnight. I was not able to get one bubble from the solution. I am not sure what is going wrong…
So maybe instead of cornstarch & EXPENSIVE lubricant (gosh… can't say I have too mauch of that laying around for the odd crafting moment…), people use Glycerine, or Corn Syrup. I have used glycerine to stabilise the bubbles in bubble mixes before.
The corn flour/starch addition seems like a waste, especially if it's not dissolving. MAYBE someone could try cooking it down with a cup or two of water in a pot on the stove before adding it to the mix. That should help it dissolve.
And I guess "Personal Lubricant" was a bit to 'WTF??' to put in the recipe graphic that is virally pinned on Pinterest!

Hi, This comment is quite a bit late but I thought I would fill you in and answer your questions. As stated in the blog post I purchased the personal lubricant at the dollar store. So pretty inexpensive addition to the recipe. Personal lubricant is quite a bit easier to find than glycerine. Glycerine is almost as expensive as PL and you can’t find it at the dollar store. Corn syrup doesn’t work for giant bubbles.
I did half a cup instead of a full cup of corn starch. Somehow the cornstarch helps even if it doesn’t dissolve.
I mixed the 1C cornstarch into the 12C water in a pot cooked on Medium heat until gel formed. Then mixed in other ingredients. Worked AWESOME!
Hi, great idea!! Where did you get, the beautiful orange and white bag for the bubbles?

I sewed the bag for the bubble kit. Thanks, Robin.
I was excited to try this recipe for bubbles but no matter how many times I stirred, the corn starch didn’t dissolve. After reading other ppls’ comments, seems everyone has the same problem. What a waste of time and ingredients!

Did you try it? My corn starch doesn’t dissolve either but it works great!! I’ve been making this for many years and it’s always worked.
