What you Need:

  • 19 L (5 gallons) distilled water
  • 2.5 L (10 cups) Dawn® dish soap (non-antibacterial)
  • 1.2 L (5 cups) Glycerin (optional)
  • Children’s hard plastic swimming pool
  • Hula Hoop

What you do:

1. Set the pool in an area that's away from any wind. Mix distilled water with Dawn® Dish Soap in the swimming pool.

2. To create stronger bubbles, add Glycerin to the mix. The bubble solution will get better with time, so if possible, allow
your mixture to sit overnight.

3. When you’re ready to start the activity, place the hula-hoop at the bottom of the pool. If desired, put a small stool in the
center of the swimming pool so children won’t have to remove their shoes.

4. Have a child get in the pool (or on the stool), and quickly and steadily lift the hula-hoop straight out of the water over
the child’s head!

Hint: If your bubble isn’t forming it is probably because you are lifting the hula-hoop too slowly.

    Because I’m a safety nerd, make sure the stool is on a non-slip rubber mat like the kind you buy for a shower. The bubble solution is slippery and no one wants to fall. :)
