    Default 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.
