If you are looking for a fun craft for your kids this summer, check out what my daughter and I made–homemade bubble mixture!
It is very inexpensive and easy to make. One bowl kept my daughter entertained for most of the summer. This bubble recipe works out great if you are short on funds but need something fun and creative for your kids to do.
Here is what you will need to create your own bubble mixture:
1/2 cup dishwashing detergent (I used Dawn or Joy– I purchased it from the Dollar Store)
4-1/2 cup water
4 tablespoons glycerin (available in pharmacies)
When you are ready to make a batch, this is how you mix it:
Measure out the water, detergent, and glycerin into container with a cover and stir gently. Note: The longer you let the mixture set, the larger the bubbles are and the longer they seem to last.
We had loads of fun playing with this bubble mixture! It kept hands and bodies busy instead of saying,
“Moooom, I’m bored!”
