With the weather getting warmer and more time being spent outside, I feel like I have to dust off my outdoor play repertoire and get prepared for summer. The opportunities for things to do outside on a beautiful summer sunny day are endless, and I love that! It's always nice to add a few new outdoor toys each year, but there are always some tried and true ones as well. What kid can ever say no to bubbles??
Making your own bubble solution is easy. The secret ingredient seems to be glycerin which can be found at most pharmacies, but corn syrup or sugar will also produce a great result.
Here are a few recipes to get you started.
Corn Syrup Bubbles
11 Cups Water
4 Cups Ajax dish soap (anti-bacterial works best)
1 Cup corn syrup
2/3 cup Joy dishwashing soap
1 gallon water
2 to 3 tablespoons of glycerin (available in pharmacies or chemical supply houses)
1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid (Dawn or Joy)
2 cups of water
2 teaspoons of sugar
*you can add a few drops of food colouring to this recipe, but then the bubble solutions should be used outdoors only.
Whether you blow bubbles the old fashion way or have a fancy bubble machine, bubbles are one outdoor activity that amuses kids (and parents!) of all ages.
