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.

Supplies:

  • 4 Tbsp of unscented dish soap
  • 16 oz water
  • 1 tsp of faerie dust
  • 1 Tbsp glycerin

Steps:

  1. Right before you go to bed make the bubbles, the faerie will come into your house and make them more magical!
  2. Combine everything into a jar. Stir ever so gently. Keep in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Remember this came from an Irish faerie witch!
  3. Faerie dust is important to use, glitter at the dollar store!
  4. Glycerin is cheap and you can get it at craft stores, make sure you tell them it is for a craft.

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.

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!

There are a lot of recipes for bubbles. Most are a combination of dish soap, water and glycerin(avail in drugstroe) to stabilize the bubbles. Mix and allow to "age" for a few days. recipes will tell you how long. I mix them in an old 2 liter soda bottle-clearly labeled and if you have little ones, stored out of reach.

I bought a small bubble machine from Wal-Mart for my day care kids. They LOVE it! It's called "Kids Bubble Generator". It uses a lot of batteries, though, so get rechargeables!
