Blowing bubbles is a longstanding childhood pastime. Of course adults love to get involved too. You can save money and also have bubble solution any time, if you make your own. This page contains recipes for homemade bubbles.
My little niece loves when we blow bubbles together, but there's always a little frown on her face when she's chasing them and they pop. I was buying her these little tubes of unbreakable bubble solution that worked okay, but not great. Here's a recipe to make your own that are very durable.
Approximate Time: 3 minutes
Yield: One jar of bubble solution
1 cup distilled water
1 Tbsp dish soap
1 tsp glycerin
Mix all ingredients in jar, shake well, and let sit for a day.
If you have a very clean glove or sock, you can put it on your hand and even catch the bubbles!
I've heard there's a homemade recipe for the liquid used for kid's blowing bubbles. Anyone have it? I've heard it's dish washing liquid and water, but what would the measurements be? Thanks. Also, has anyone ever purchased an electric bubble machine? I saw one in New Orleans on a upper balcony last year. It was really cool!
Servings: 1 Combine ingredients and pour into an unbreakable bottle. To blow bubbles, experiment using plastic straws, pipe cleaners formed into loops, strawberry baskets from grocery store, spoons with holes in them and other items you think of.
