Spring has finally sprung!! (At least a few days this week.) Time for bubbles! And this is possibly the most awesome bubble recipe of all time.
The bubbles literally bounce on people and on the grass. It is amazing. I used it in a class I taught today and nearly all the kids could bounce them from hand-to-hand. (Remember these are still bubbles. They pop. But they’re the most hearty bubbles I’ve ever seen.) Note: You must wear gloves to be able to ‘hold’ them or bounce them off your hand.
I have two different recipes for you. The first is very good AND contains stuff you might normally have around the house. The second just adds glycerine. It can be found at any pharmacy – even Walmart and Target.
3 Cups Water (Note: It may help to use bottled water. Harsh chemicals may affect how sturdy the bubbles are. However, I used tap water and mine were still pretty cool.)
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup dish soap (the more expensive, the better. The cheaper ones are too watered down.)
**All of the above plus 2 Tablespoons glycerine.
**These bubbles can be frozen when the temps drop below zero degrees.
**Break apart a glow stick and add to the solution for night bubbles. Or use some glow in the dark tempra
**Pour on a cookie sheet and blow for indoor table fun
