All kids LOVE bubbles (I know a few adults too!)! You can easily buy bubbles at any dollar store, but the real fun is in making bubbles at home with the kids and then enjoying them outside! It even incorporates some fun science while you are mixing!
Making your own bubble solution is easy. The secret ingredient seems to be glycerin which can be found at most pharmacies, but corn syrup or sugar will also produce a great result.
Here are a few recipes to get you started.
Corn Syrup Bubbles
11 Cups Water
4 Cups Ajax dish soap (anti-bacterial works best)
1 Cup corn syrup
2/3 cup Joy dishwashing soap
1 gallon water
2 to 3 tablespoons of glycerin (available in pharmacies or chemical supply houses)
1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid (Dawn or Joy)
2 cups of water
2 teaspoons of sugar
*you can add a few drops of food colouring to this recipe, but then the bubble solutions should be used outdoors only.
Be sure to sing these 7 bubble songs while you are having fun outside!
