What could be better on the first day of the school holidays than to still be in our pyjamas at 10am?
The kids are currently out in the back yard blowing bubbles.
DIY BUBBLE MIXTURE
3 parts dishwashing liquid
(Morning Fresh works well)
7 parts hot water
1 part glycerine
(without making it too frothy)
N.B. - You may need to experiment a little bit with the amount of detergent.
- It works better if you make it the day before or even a week before!
– Glycerine can be found at the supermarket (in the medicine section).
- Apparently bubbles don’t like dry weather so they work better at night, in the shade or in rainy weather.
- You don’t need store bought bubble wands, use things from your kitchen drawers, twist some pipecleaners or a coathanger.
I have 3 buckets (from the kids sandpit) permanently sitting on our back windowsill.
One filled with bubble wands & a bottle of mixture.
One filled with sidewalk chalk.
One filled with old paint brushes for ‘water painting’ on hot days.
