We tried bouncing bubbles last year (Instagram Photo) with a store bought bubble solution and couldn’t get it to work and gave up. This year we figured it out, it wasn’t the glove or even us, it was the bubble solution 🙁 Now with our super strong bubbles it’s easy peasy– and great for hand-eye coordination too– yay!!! 🙂

1. Mix all the ingredients together, stir until the sugar dissolves, and then have fun blowing bubbles.
To make the bubbles bounce you need to wear soft gloves, blow the bubbles gently, and let them softly bounce on your hand. We had a bit of trouble doing this activity outside because it was windy. So we took the activity inside and found out the bubbles bounced on our carpet and hair too!
Once the wind stopped outside we were able to bounce our bubbles in the backyard. When these bubbles pop the outside of the bubble remains. Little Tiger said they looked like spider webs.
The gloves make it possible to bounce bubbles because the bubble doesn’t come in contact with the oil on our hands which breaks surface tension. Some gloves work and some gloves don’t so if it doesn’t work, try a different glove. Also, if you didn’t use Dawn dish soap and your bubbles aren’t working you may want to try again with Dawn brand dish soap. In no way am I a spokes lady for them, but for some reason in our experience it works the best. (We even keep some in our craft supply closet). Now we hope you have fun bouncing bubbles!
