I use to use homemade bubbles as a kid. Over the years that recipe and all the fun was forgotten. While reading Make and Takes I was reminded of the good times and given a new recipe. This is Marie's recipe:
1 Cup dish soap (she used Palmolive, I used Ajax and will be trying Palmolive next time.
4 Cups water
1/4 Karo syrup
Marie stored hers in a milk jug. I used a 2 litter pop bottle. I first measured everything using only water. I then made marks (1 cup, at the bottom for the soap. Then I added 4 cups of water and made the water line. Then I added 1/4 of water and drew a syrup line. Next time I will not have to use any measuring cups.
I had bought some wands at Dollar Tree. My kids loved the bubbles. I plan to buy or make a few more wands so that the neighborhood kids can join in.
Look at that. So cheap. So easy.
