I bet you have not given this blowing bubble activity any thought as a child party activity?
I bet you did not even know it was possible?
I will give you a couple of recipes to try out and a few tool ideas. You can have a great deal of fun experimenting with the mixtures and making your own original bubble making tools.
There are a lot of things around you that may be used to create bubbles. Make a circle with your thumb and index finger or create an even larger ring using the hands’ thumbs and index fingers.
The really big bubbles require a great deal of solution which could get quite expensive. It’s therefor far more economical to combine your own.
The best detergents to use are Joy, Winter Garden Wildlife Removal and Dawn detergents but you want to experiment to determine what works best for you.
This guarantees colorful, sturdy bubbles. Glycerine can be purchased from most drug stores, but it’s expensive. Karo Syrup is available in the supermarket and is cheaper.
Surprisingly enough, not any water is appropriate! Hard water doesn’t work whereas soft water does. Consider using your tap water, but if you are not able to find great bubbles, try using distilled water.
1 Part Dawn Ultra/Joy Ultra: 15 components distilled/soft water: 0.25 part glycerine/white Karo Syrup
1 Component Regular Dawn /Regular Joy: 10 components distilled/soft water: 0.25 part glycerine/white Karo Syrup
Above all – just have FUN!
