We love bubbles! In our STEAMwork sensory play, learn how to make your own bubble solution and help Barbara find the perfect homemade bubble wand.

ingredients for your bubble solution:

4 cups of warm water

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid

You will also need an airtight container and mixing utensil.

wondering why we add sugar?

Sugar helps you make bigger bubbles that last longer.

Bubbles are made up of three very thin layers: soap, water, soap. All together this is called soap film. When the inner water layer evaporates, the bubble pops. By adding sugar, the soap film is thicker and delays the eventual evaporation.
