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.
Total Time: 3 minutes
Yield: One jar of bubble solution

Mix gently as making suds will weaken mixture.
Faerie bubbles are very important to every little girl and boy you meet. They bring the magic of the faeries into anyone's heart. When you blow a bubble make a wish before it pops!
Mix together and blow bubbles. Have fun.
Pretty Bubbles. Place all ingredients in a small bottle with lid. Give a gentle stir to mix. Be sure to label it, too. . .
Want a cheap way to make bubbles for the kids? Just add a little shampoo to some water and let them go. By imaqt1962
Dissolve 2 tablespoons sugar into 2 cups warm water. Slowly add 1 cup tear-free baby shampoo. Stir well but gently. This is GREAT for kids birthday parties and for the younger kids that can't play with the big brother's and sister's bubble solution!
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.

Hey there! Try ehowmom, there are alot of different ways. Good luck.
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!
I know there is an exact formula for making homemade bubbles, but can't remember what it is, can you help?
using a plastic ketchup bottle (or any squeeze bottle) fill it half way with dish detergent and the other half with water place the lid on shake well and proceed to have a blast.
