Having kids that are a little more than ten years apart has its upsides and downsides. Thankfully it’s mostly upsides. One of the things I love most is sharing some of Ryan’s favorite things when he was little with Evie. I get the best of both worlds enjoying those things with her brings back all the memories of when her brother was little. Right now Evie is obsessed with bubbles and has been since she was a baby. I have more bubble supplies than I know what to do with but honestly, it never gets old. Ryan was the same way at this age. Something about bubbles fascinates kids and they are such a timeless pastime. Over the years, I’ve become quite the expert in making our own bubbles. This has been my go-to homemade bubble recipe for the last twelve years or so and it always makes the perfect bubbles – giant or small.

Everyone loves bubbles. I even like to set a container of bubble solution out for the kids at parties and picnics. The little ones love them and I’ll even catch the big kids over there playing with them too.

Heck, sometimes the adults even have fun with them. Bubbles are great at bringing the kid out in everyone.

In fact, they make a great hostess gift. When we’re invited to picnics and parties in the summer, I’ll put together a little bubble hostess gift for the family.

I’ll grab a little self-dispensing container, fill it with the supplies to make this giant bubble recipe and an assortment of bubble wands.

Sometimes I’ll get lucky and find kits already made and all I have to do is include a printout of my favorite bubble recipe.

Other times, I’ll assemble the kit myself with different things I find and I’ll complete it with the bubble recipe. It’s super simple and the kids always love it.

There are tons of bubble recipes out there and I’m sure they’re all great but today I’m sharing my super bubble recipe that I’ve been making for the last twelve years.

One of my close friends shared it with me when Ryan was little and anytime I make my own bubbles, this is what I use. It always works great. It even makes those giant bubbles all kids love!
