Homemade Bubbles

This project gives children as well as adults the chance to make their own homemade bubbles.

Note: As in all recipes, results can vary depending on humidity, conditions, etc. Please try any recipe out before attempting in a group setting.

What You Need

* 1/2 cup Dishwashing detergent (120 ml)
* 4 1/2 Cup Water (1.1 liter)
* 4 Tablespoons glycerin (available at pharmacies) (60 ml)
* Container with a tight fitting lid in which to keep the bubbles
* Measuring devices
* Spoon

How To Make It

1. Gather all your supplies.
2. Measure out the water, detergent, and glycerin into container.
3. GENTLY stir the mixture together. If a foam forms, gently skim it off the top.
4. Find something with which to blow bubbles and begin to have fun.

Note: The longer you let the mixture set, the larger the bubbles are and the longer they seem to last.[/b]

Here's another nice idea for those of you stuck at home with restless kiddies.

This is lovely. I've done this with schoolkids.

Another thing you can do is mix up a bit of powder paint (or a very small amount of poster paint) with washing up liquid and water, dip straws in it, and then blow what's in the straw onto a piece of paper. This can only be done with older kids who understand they have to BLOW and not SUCK.
