Giant Bubbles!

So back around 4th of July I wanted to make these giant bubbles.
I had seen it on a blog to do it yourself.
We had one years ago made by Klutz.
I tried to take the easy way out and buy one but they don't make them anymore according to the gal at the store.
Fortunately my friend Heather had a post on how to do it.
And we were off to home depot for supplies. (See Heather's link for how to details)

This took all of 5-10 minutes to put together.
I did hammer tap the screw eyes into the dowels to get them started, than just hand twisted.
Ellie surveying the progress.
Big bubbles here we come!
I have to confess we did not use the glycerine or the distilled water.
I am told the glycerine will help the bubbles stay together better.
But this was entertaining. And almost addictive!
Ellie and will hunt for glycerine today to see if it makes a difference.
We will let you know!!


  1. Looks fun! I think I hava a bottle of gycerine if you want it?

  2. It looks like the bubbles did just fine without the glycerine. They are addictive, aren't they? I think I like them more than the kids.
