Transcript:3 Easy Homemade Bubble Solutions
Hi, I'm Jacob Taxis for About.com. In this video you will learn how to make three easy homemade bubble solutions. These are recipes from About.com's Toddlers site.
Recipe #1: Best Homemade Bubbles
- 1 cup water
- 4 tablespoons dishwashing liquid
- 2 tablespoons light karo syrup or 2 tablespoons glycerin
You can buy small amounts of glycerin at your local pharmacy or you can purchase it by-the-gallon online. Mix all the ingredients together and get making bubbles! Bubbles will immediately pop when they hit a dry surface. Enjoy long-lasting bubbles by refreshing your bubble wand often and by keeping your environment wet.
Recipe #2: Homemade Colored Bubbles
- 1 cup granulated soap or soap powder
- 1 quart warm water
- Liquid food coloring
Start by dissolving the soap in the warm water. Then, stir in the food coloring. Add in drops until you've attained your preferred color intensity. Distribute the colored solution to each bubble blower in a small can, cup or jar. Remember that food coloring can stain, so your participants' attire should be considered before you begin.
Recipe #3: Fancy Homemade Bubbles
- 1 cup of water
- 2 tablespoons of liquid detergent
- 1 tablespoon of glycerin
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
Mix together all the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved. Try using household items to create wild varieties of bubbles. Now that you have your homemade bubble solution mixed, select a suitable container for your bubble activities. Jars and cups work well for small bubble wands. Bowls, buckets and pales are good for medium sized wands. A tray or even a box lined with a garbage bag are ideal containers for the large-wand bubble activities. Thank you for watching.
