It’s true that bubble mixture isn’t expensive or hard to find, however, what your kids miss out on is process of making it themselves! It’s very easy and has only a few ingredients.
What you need –
* Dishwashing liquid
*Glycerol (from the Chemist)
I used a small lid to measure out each part of the ingredients.
Add 7 parts water.
Add 1 part Glycerol
Add 3 parts dishwashing detergent.
Mix this really well together.
Shhhh special trick!
If you leave the mixture overnight you will make bubbles that are easier to
blow and last longer in the air. Resist if you can.
For larger quantities of bubble mixture, you can remodel an old wire coat hanger
and use it as a bubble wand.
This is a great activity that gets dads involved. Here we are using a garden tie as a bubble wand. You can use long bread ties too.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post.
