Bubbles

1 cup Dawn

3 cups water

3/8 cup corn syrup

I used to make these for my kids…and we'd have bubble parties!

What does the corn syrup do for the bubbles?  Does it make little sticky places where the bubbles land?


no…but I didn't let them blow them in the house…they'd play and then I'd hose them down…some people also use glycerin…I think it helps the bubbles hold better…for lack of better words…

Don't know for sure, but would guess that the corn syrup would increase the surface tension of the bubble making it last longer.  Or it may just be to make the bubbles taste better…  Smiley Rabbit

In Pre K, I always used the glycerin.  It does hold the bubbles better.  We'd put the solution in a small kiddie pool, then stand a kid in the pool with a hula hoop around the bottom.  When we would bring the hula hoop up, it would put the kid in a bubble.  They loved it!!

I didn't mean the corn syrup wouldn't hold the bubbles as well as the glycerin.  I've never used the corn syrup method.  I meant the glycerin holds the bubbles better than not using anything…
