make your own bubbles



Has anyone else been just a little aggravated with bubbles lately?

I mean, they just don't make them like they used to.

Today Lil Man and I tried to blow bubbles, but we couldn't make a bubble to save our lives.  Grrrrrrrrrr.  What is up with that?  Okay, so the pregnancy hormones aren't helping the situation either, but bubbles should be easy, shouldn't they?  And fun!  

I love watching my kids giggle and run after them, trying to catch them, pop them, and sometimes even eat them.  But bubbles aren't just for kids.  They're for grown-ups too.  Imagine blowing all your cares into their shiny wet spheres and watching them float away.  I think we should blow bubbles every day! 

My Mother-in-Love has a great recipe for HUGE bubbles.  We're talking enormous, whatever size you wish for, bubbles.
Here's her Big Bubble recipe (that works!):

1 Cup Ivory Liquid (no degreaser)

12 cups water

3/4 Tablespoon glycerin (found in drug department of Walmart)

Stir together and leave uncovered overnight. It works better. 
Cut out wand from tops of old plastic containers, the larger, the better.

Have fun!

The best thing about making your own bubbles?  You can get totally creative and use just about anything as a bubble wand!  

It's fun, it's free, it's fabulous.

So go blow some bubbles.

I agree, bubbles seemed to last a lot longer when I was a kid. I love blowing bubbles. I used to love blowing them and watching the dog chase and eat them.

I love the idea of blowing all my problems away in a big bubble! Now that would be something!! jeje..
We all know the solution though. ;)

Now we have a fun "solution" for bubbles too! I wonder what glycerin is in Spanish. I will Have to look it up.

We had huge bubble wands my mom sent me till the boys took them apart to use the sticks as swords. :)

YOur box is on it´s way. Hope it makes it ok.
