Here is the link to the activity, but I have added a few of my own ideas:
Introduce bubbles to your child(ren). Tinkergarten suggests making the bubble juice first, which is appropriate for very small children, but if your child is old enough you should involve them in the bubble juice making. Introduce bubbles first by reading some rhymes and poems. Then read a book about bubbles if you have one or watch a video to spark interest and create background knowledge for your child. This video actually shows you how to make the bubbles and bubble wands in steps 2 and 3.
Make bubble juice in a container or bowl using 1 tablespoon of dishwashing soap (ideally Dawn), 4 cups of water, and 1-2 teaspoons of glycerine (also known as glycerin or Glycero). I found that corn syrup also works in the place of the glycerin (use 1/4 cup instead) and can be found at your local grocery store. Glycerin can also be found at the store, but it is in the pharmacy.
Make bubble wands using pipe cleaners and sticks. Twist the pipe cleaners around the stick. Try making different shapes and sizes.
Have fun blowing and making bubbles!
