This giant bubble recipe is the same recipe that was used to set the Guinness World Record for giant bubbles! I’ll show you how to use a giant bubble wand to make giant bubbles with this giant bubble recipe!
This summer you can have lots of fun with bubbles! I love creating themed days for the kids to enjoy during long summer days. This theme centers around bubbles! First, we head outdoors to play with giant bubbles. Then, we head inside for a snack and a rest time while we watch TELETUBBIES: BUBBLES on DVD. I’ll show you how you can create a bubble themed day too! Plus scroll to the end to print the giant bubble recipe!
To make your solution for your giant bubbles you’ll need to follow the giant bubble recipe. This recipe is very forgiving and doesn’t need to be exact. Print it off below!
In a large bucket or container, add 3 gallons of hot water. Add baking powder and mix well until there are no lumps.
In a separate smaller bowl, add guar gum powder and enough rubbing alcohol to blend it into a lump-free slurry that is thin enough to easily pour.
Begin stirring the water in the bucket until it creates a vortex in the center. Pour the guar gum alcohol slurry into it and continue stirring for a minute or two as the liquid thickens slightly.
Mix in the dish soap gently to avoid foaming. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes.
Use it now or store it in a container for later! These giant soap bubbles were so much fun!! Even the kids were able to use the giant bubble wand to create the giant bubbles. We had a blast!

We made the giant bubble recipe and then we used our giant bubble wand to create these huge bubbles! You can make your own giant bubble wands or buy them. Then just hold one wand in each hand and dip the string in the giant bubble solution. Allow it to absorb the solution for 20 seconds and then lift the string out of the solution, keeping the wands together and lifting them straight up to eye level. Slowly separate your arms sideways and allow the breeze from behind you to blow the soap bubble between the string opening. Then bring the two wands together to cut off and release the bubble when it’s big enough.
After our fun outdoors, we headed indoors for a snack and some rest time. The kids were excited to watch the new Teletubbies: Bubbles DVD!
I chose the TELETUBBIES: BUBBLES DVD for our bubble themed day because it is packed with singing, dancing and splashing, all centered around bubbles!
