What can keep four children playing happily so their mother can hang laundry on the clothesline? Homemade bubbles!
2/3 Cup Joy Dishwashing Soap
3 Tbsp. Glycerin (Available at the pharmacy)
Water (A little less than 1 gallon)
Combine the dish soap and glycerin in an empty gallon milk jug. Add enough water to fill the jug. Shake and allow the solution to sit until the following day.
These bubbles work best if they have been allowed to sit at least overnight. We have experimented with homemade wands. Pipe cleaners, plastic berry baskets, and fly swatters are lots of fun.
If you want to see a really fun way for your kids to enjoy bubbles check out what Kristen of We Are THAT Family set up for her kids. I think it looks like lots of fun…for the kids of course. 🙂
