Homemade Bubble Recipe

With temperatures well below negative this week, there were a lot of really cool outdoor idea posts circling around the internet.  One that really caught my eye was a blog post written about a photographer who blew bubbles with her daughter outside in the freezing temps. As a result the bubbles froze and turned into these beautiful little ice domes.  Since all of our bubbles were frozen shut in our outdoor chest, Kevin went to the store to buy some.  Would you believe that he actually had a hard time finding bubbles at the store in the middle of January? ;)  So I just decided to make our own.  The experiment was a huge fail. Every bubble popped before it even had a chance to hit the ground.  I even went as far as to put bubbles on a plate and set them outside.  No luck.  So we made the best of two giant jars of bubbles, brought them inside and let the kids keep themselves busy for awhile blowing bubbles to the dogs.


  • 6 cups of water 
  • 1 cup of corn syrup 
  • 2 cups of dishwashing soap.  We used palmolive. 
Mix the water and corn syrup until the corn syrup has dissolved.  Gently add the soap. Store in a mason jar or milk jug.
