Playing with bubbles is a fun and easy summertime activity. Let's take it a step further and make those bubbles giant ones.

What you'll need:

- A bucket or large bowl

- Water

-Dish soap


- String or yarn

- 2 Straws

For our solution, we are going to add 4 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of glycerin, and 1 cup of dish soap. The dish soap will lower the surface tension and help make our bubbles. The glycerin can be found in the baking section of your local store. This will help to make the bubbles not pop as fast.

It's recommended to let your solution sit for 24 hours.

For big bubbles you'll need a big wand. We will make our wand out of string and two straws. Cut your string to be 6 times the length of your straw. Thread the string through the straws and tie it.

Go outside, dip you wand into the solution and slowly pull the straws apart while walking backwards.
