Homemade Bubbles

Giant Bubbles
1 cup liquid detergent (or no-tears baby shampoo)
1 cup glycerin (or corn syrup)
3 cups water
Food coloring (optional)
Round bubble blower made of thin wire (6-8 inches in diameter)

Mix all ingredient together. May add food coloring for colored bubbles.
To make bubble blower, bend a wire clothes hanger into a circle. To form the handle, twist the hook opposite the circle. Wrap the handle with electrical tape or yarn. For bigger bubbles, wrap the circle with cotton twine. This will help absorb more soap mixture. The rounder the circle, the better it works. Florist wire can be used to make smaller wands with different shapes.

Bubble Bottle Holder
Cut hole in bottom of plastic margarine tub. Replace lid. Insert bottle or cup of bubbles. Helps prevent tip-overs.

Great Bubbles
1 cup liquid detergent (or no-tears baby shampoo)
3 cups water
Food coloring (optional)

Pour into cups and blow bubbles with straws or bubble pipes. May add food coloring for colored bubbles.

Bubble Bath
2 cups soap flakes (or grated soap)
1 gallon water
1/4-1/2 cup glycerin
2 cups shampoo or liquid dishwashing detergent
Scented oil

Mix the soap flakes, water and 2 tablespoons glycerin in a pot and set over low heat. Stir occasionally until the soap has dissolved. In a bowl, add a 2 cups of this mixture to the rest of the glycerin and shampoo. Add a few drops of scented oil. Put into a quart container and store covered at room temperature. When ready to use, add one cup to the tub as it is filling.

*Children should always be supervised when preparing or cooking in the kitchen.

B is for Bubbles

Benny bought a bubble loop
For bubbles big and small.
He blew so many bubbles,
He couldn't count them all.

Along came Benny's brother, who's always on the run.
He spilled the bubble liquid,
Which ruined Benny's fun.

Benny did not get upset.
He knew what he could do.
He made more bubble liquid.

It's easy - you can, too!
