DIY Lavender Bubbles
Did you know that you can make your very own bubbles? Today I have a beautiful craft to share with you and your kids will love it too. That’s right, it’s beautiful and kids will love it. Introducing: DIY Lavender Bubbles! I know it might not be bubble blowing season where you live, but knowing how to make bubbles is something that is sure to impress your kids.
Now, I realize that the weather has cooled off a bit in some places (and it might even be snowing where you are). However, here on the coast of California, the weather is still lovely! So, in celebration of the Christmas season ending and the crisp skies outside, I decided to create something that was inspired by nature. Plus, you can’t eat it! Let’s be honest here, after all of that holiday food, doesn’t it sound nice to go outside and play? Exactly! DIY lavender bubbles are perfect to relax your kiddos while playing outdoors.
I have a lot (a lot) of lavender growing! Here is a picture of the lavender in my front yard. This lavender has inspired me to make so many things on my blog!
To make the DIY Lavender Bubbles, you only need a few simple ingredients:
A bubble container
Lavender scented dish soap (I found mine at the dollar store!)
To make the Lavender Bubbles:
Combine 4 cups of warm water with 1/2 cup of sugar.
Once the sugar is completely dissolved, add 3/4 cup of the lavender dish soap
Add 1 drop of blue food coloring and 3 drops of red food coloring
Store in an air tight container
To make the DIY bubble wand:
Create a circle near one end of the pipe cleaner and twist any extra around the stem of the pipe cleaner (so easy!).
Have you ever made your own bubble solution? There are so many ways you can do it. Keep in mind that your dish soap might be a little different than mine and that’s ok! Simply add more or less as you see needed. The same goes with the food coloring! Some lavender dish soaps are more purple than others, so if you just add a little at first, it can’t go wrong!
