Our little grands just love bubbles!
When I’ve found two plastic bottles of bubbles on sale for a dollar, at first I thought, "What a deal!” Then I surfed the Internet and discovered countless free recipes for bubbles.
Did you know that bubbles can be made with everyday dishwashing soap, water and either glycerin or Karo syrup? (Yep, Karo syrup.)
Some of the Internet recipes call for liquid Joy, others say Dawn is the best to use, and a few suggest baby shampoo. I mixed and matched some ingredients, and this is the mixture one of our grands and I used:
1/3 cup Ultra Concentrated Liquid Joy
1 tablespoon Karo syrup (I had dark Karo and it worked just fine.)
Water (complete filling an empty 18 oz. jar)
I combined the ingredients the evening before they’d be used. Someone said doing this makes bigger bubbles, so I thought I’d try it. I also put the lid on the jar—didn’t want the concoction to attract any thirsty ants.
For bubble wands, I cut two straws in half and taped the halves together, side-by-side. Then my grand and I went outside where she dipped her homemade wand in a container of homemade bubbles and watched her creations float into the sky.
As they drifted towards the clouds, we talked about how God made everything (Acts 17:24)—the clouds, birds, sun … and, yes, bubbles.
