(Recipe is approximate. You may have to play with the ratios a little.)
Most kids get a kick out of bubbles. Actually I like bubbles, so perhaps there are a few adults out there too that would be keen for a bubble recipe. I just use my kids as an excuse to use them.
Bubbles love a wet environment. So if it’s humid, rainy kind of weather, perfect for bubbles. In the bath, with the bathroom door shut (trapping that moist air in ) perfect for bubbles. Snowing outside…I have no idea, but give it a go. It could be perfect for bubbles. When the bubbles pop straight away they are drying out, the glycerine helps to stop that, and the moisture in the air as well.
Make your mixture up and leave it a few hours, or even over night (I’m not sure why, but it seems to work.)
You can use anything as your bubble maker. We had an empty container that had been given to us previously, but an old wire coat hanger twisted in to a circle can work just as well. Bigger bubbles!
Now go get to those bubbles.
(they also make a great inexpensive gift.)
* Where to buy glycerine from? Your local chemist. Not expensive and will do you quite a lot of bubbles.
