Full Answer

  1. Make the touchable bubble solution

    In a large bowl, mix 6 cups distilled water, 1 cup light corn syrup and 2 cups dishwashing liquid. Do not use tap water to make the bubble solution, as the minerals in the tap water weaken the bubbles and cause them to pop. Stir the mixture gently to prevent bubbles or suds from forming.

  2. Store the bubble solution

    Pour the solution into containers, such as water bottles or empty bubble containers. When not in use, close the containers, and store the bubble solution out of the reach of children. The bubble solution can also be used in bubble guns, bubble blowers and other bubble toys.

  3. Play with the touchable bubbles

    Before using the bubbles, gently tip the container back and forth to mix the solution. Do not shake the container or stir the solution, as this creates suds in the solution and makes it difficult to blow bubbles. Dip the bubble wand into the solution, and gently blow on the wand to make touchable bubbles.
