Hello :) Was just wondering if has a good "recipe" for bubbles. What ratio of soap and water do you use? Is there a particular type of soap (hand soap, dish soap, etc) and/or brand of soap that you find works best? My daughter is good at spilling her brother's bubbles, so that would be a handy thing to know ;) Thanks!

What can I do next?

1 cup Joy or Dawn

2 cups WARM water

3 tablespoon Glycerin

1/2 teaspoon Sugar
Mix together and store in an air tight container. Item to use to "blow" bubbles: plastic strawberry basket, colander, platic six pack holder, funnel, plastic straw cut on a slant, tape several straws together, paper cup with a hole punched in the bottom will make giant bubbles.

I've just mixed Dawn Dish soap and water, not sure exactly how much of each I usually just add the soap till it makes a good bubble! The other recipe also works, but if you don't have the glycerin its ok. Have fun!
