Saturday, July 22, 2006 Homemade Bubbles for Kids - Craft Recipes

Thanks to Shannon for these ideas!

What You Need
1/2 cup Dishwashing detergent (120 ml)
4 1/2 Cup Water (1.1 liter)
4 Tablespoons glycerin (available at pharmacies) (60 ml)
Container with a tight fitting lid in which to keep the bubbles
Measuring devices

How To Make It
Gather all your supplies. Measure out the water, detergent, and glycerin into container. GENTLY stir the mixture together. If a foam forms, gently skim it off the top. Find something with which to blow bubbles and begin to have fun. Note: The longer you let the mixture set, the larger the bubbles are and the longer they seem to last.

Homemade Bubbles and Bubble Blower
This is a fun project that is quick to make up and have on hand at a moment's notice.

What You Need
Materials Needed for Bubbles:
1/2 cup Dish soap
1 1/2 cups Water
2 teaspoons Sugar
Medium sized mixing bowl or cup
Sealed container (jar with lid)

Materials Needed for Bubble Blower:
1 Drinking straw (2 if you cut the pop holder, mentioned in the next step, into smaller parts)
1 six pack pop holder plastic thing (the six ring things that go around the pop cans)
Scotch tape
Bowl or pan (to pour bubbles into)
Scissors, optional

How To Make It
Instructions for Bubbles:
Mix all 3 ingredients together. Don't stir or shake too much. Store in a sealed container. Lasts forever (we've always used it up without ever having any trouble with it going bad).

Instructions for the Bubble Blower: Tape the pop holder to the straw. Pour bubbles into bowl or pan. Dip into bubbles and twirl around. Makes LOTS of BIG bubbles. You can cut the pop can holder ring thing into two 2's (the middle 2 will be wasted) and make two.
