|Not the best picture of me, but it really shows you how child is inside bubble!
I recently posted a Dinosaur Bash party and promised you tutorials for all of the key elements of this fun party, so here is another tutorial!
Last year our son’s school hired someone to come in and do a bubble pool for the kids in his class. My son enjoyed this so much that I knew it would have to be the entertainment at his birthday party. So I used my handy dandy iphone and started to do some research on the different ways to make this special bubble solution to achieve the best bubble possible. I finally found a recipe and it worked out perfectly.
Child size pool
Dawn Dish Soap
Empty one gallon jugs
Important Tip: Make sure you prepare bubble solution and let it sit overnight before you use it to get the best bubble possible.
Prepare solution: In a one gallon jug add:
– 2 cups Dawn dish soap
– 1 cup corn syrup
– 1 package unflavored gelatin
Add water to almost fill the jug, but do so slowly as to not create too many suds in the jug!
Close cap and shake, shake, shake, baby! Let solution sit overnight so that the ingredients bond well.
Important: In order to fill an average size kiddie pool you will need to make (3) jugs of solution, don’t be like me and skip ahead and not read the previous IMPORTANT TIP :), then end up with not enough solution! Learn from my mistake.
Prepare Hula hoop:
Wrap cotton string around hula hoop and tie or tuck string in, this is important because the string will help the bubble solution adhere to the hula hoop for maximum bubblelocity (yes, I just made that word up!)
IT’S BUBBLE POOL TIME
1. Pour (3) jugs of solution inside pool, dip the cotton string-wrapped hula hoop inside solution making sure that it gets very saturated. Keep hula hoop on pool bottom.
2. Have one very excited child step inside middle of the pool, inside hula hoop, carefully it will be quite slippery!
3. In one smooth stroke, pull the hula hoop over the child above his head, if done successfully, you will have one very happy child standing inside of a humongous bubble.
