A fun way to spend any day is to pull out a bottle of bubbles. Those bubbles create amazement and excitement in children of all ages but can end up costing a lot of money. Here we offer an easy recipe so that you can extend the fun by making your own bubble mix as well as really fun toys to make your bubbles as big or little as you like!
Basic Bubble Mix
• 2/3 cup Joy dishwashing liquid
• 1 gallon bucket of water (for LOTS of fun!)
• 2 - 3 tablespoons glycerin
Mix together and dip your favorite bubble wand in for a bucket load of fun!
Bubble Wand 1
Bend one end of a chenille stem or pipe cleaner into a circle and dip the circle end into the bubble solution.
Bubble Wand 2
Attach a pipe cleaner to one corner of the plastic ring holder from a 6-pack of soda. Hold the ring holder by the pipe cleaner and dip into bubble solution.
Bubble Wand 3
Use a fly swatter or the bottom of a strawberry basket (with a pipe cleaner attached to make a handle)!
