Bubbles Galore!

by Brandie Valenzuela | 0 Comments

Bubbles! What child can resist bubbles? Not mine -- they love them and so do I. There is something so peaceful and calming about a floating bubble, and kids just squeal with delight when you had them some bubble solution and a wand!

Many stores sell bubble solution, and while not a bad alternative, it can really add up if you have a true bubble loving bunch! I have compiled for you several bubble recipes, that are all easy to make. Try your hand at one or more of them - the kids will love you for it!

Recipe # 1
1 quart water
12 teaspoons glycerine
8 teaspoon liquid green soap
Mix and let stand overnight. Hint: gycerine can be found at most drug stores.

Recipe # 2
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup liquid detergent
1 tablspoon cooking oil
Mix together and have fun blowing bubbles!

Recipe # 3
1 cup water
2 Tbsp. Light Karo Syrup
4 Tbsp. dishwashing liquid
Mix together to use.

Recipe # 4
2 tablespoon dish soap
1 cup water
Mix together and use.

Colourful Bubbles

Recipe # 1
1 cup granulated soap or soap powder
1 quart warm water
liquid food coloring
Dissolve soap in warm water. Stir in food coloring. Use.

Recipe # 2
1 cup liquid tempra paints (use a washable variety)
2 tablespoon dish detergent
1 tablespoon liquid starch
Mix together. If too thick, add a little water, a teaspoon at a time. Note: this recipe can create messy bubbles.
