Article: Bubbles Galore
Bubbles! What child can resist bubbles? Not mine, they love them and well, 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.
"Colourful Bubbles - 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.

I want to try the recipe #2. I never can find glycerine, and then when I do, it is expensice, I wonder how cooking oil will work.
