The Best Bubbles EVER

Summer is right around the corner and I am taking out some of my recipes for warm weather fun.

I have found that making bubbles that are large, and last more than a millisecond is vital for keeping your kids actively interested in participating in the activity.

It is frustrating when you get the bubbles out and after a few minutes have grumpy kids on your hands because the bubble mix isn't holding it's end of the bargain.

Simple bubble recipes call for water and dish soap. Which works. But for great big bubbles, follow the recipe below.

2 Cups of Water

1 Cup of Liquid Dish Soap (I've had success with Dawn and Joy)

1 Cup Glycerin (which is sold in drug stores)

1 teaspoon Corn Syrup (you can use a teaspoon sugar instead)

Slowly mix all ingredients in a shallow pan.

If you want super bubbles, make this the day before you plan to use it and store it in the fridge in an air tight container overnight.

You can bend a wire hanger, use a loop of string or use saved bubble wands to create bubbles.

Feel free to double the recipe for more fun!
