Homemade Bubbles

If your kids are like mine, they love blowing bubbles.

If they are really like mine, then they also tend to spill more bubble solution than they actually blow...on purpose. I don't know why but they both really enjoy dumping the stuff all over the place.

Bubble stuff isn't expensive, but you can make it for even cheaper at home, and it is super easy.

1.5 parts dish soap (Joy or Dawn)
8 parts water
.25 parts glycerin (available at pharmacies)

By the way, for the record I would like to say that I really am not overly restrictive about what my kids eat. I may seethe over it, but I generally allow them have whatever is offered to them...and sometimes I even offer them crap myself.

Yesterday is a perfect example. We went to Yorkdale Mall to find bedding for Little A's big-girl bed that we just ordered. We promised the girls we would buy them dinner there, so I got them smoothies from Jamba Juice, and a hot dog (sans white flour bun!) and fries from New York Fries.

Everything in moderation, right? Well except for tobacco, crack-cocaine and running with scissors...

Anyhoo, enjoy some good clean fun blowing bubbles.


  1. Nice lighthearted post :) I love blowing bubbles with little kids!

  2. I love blowing bubbles too, there is actually something very therapeutic about it!
