In our family outdoor summer parties mean bubbles.  The kids love blowing and chasing bubbles.  But the bubble solution in those little bottles disappear rather quickly, and many times little hands spill out the contents; then your faced with an angry kid demanding more bubbles.

Bubble Stations are a great idea for kid’s parties.  A large drink dispenser is a neat way to set up the station.  Kids can help themselves to refills without making a big mess.

We set up a bubble station for my grandson, Jett’s, Thomas the Train themed birthday party last month.  I filled the dispenser with the large batch of bubble solution I mixed up.   I’m sure I’ll be mixing another batch for my twin grandkids first birthday party next month.

 Never run out of bubble solution again.  Here’s a recipe for homemade bubble solution.  It’s simple and inexpensive to make and will keep several weeks in an airtight container.


8 cups warm water

1 cup sugar

1 cup Dawn dish washing soap


Fill dispenser with warm water.

Stir in sugar until dissolved.

Add soap into the sugar water and stir until combined.

Your bubble solution is ready for use!

For parties we give each child a small bottle of bubbles, when the bottle is empty they can refill it at the bubble station.
