diy {‘the world’s best bubbles’}

The recipe called it the “World’s Best Bubbles”, so I gave it a try. I usually buy the massive jug for a $1.00 you can get at the store, but I thought it would be fun to see if this recipe was really any better. Littlest Brother and I made a date of it. We went to Target and bought him a bubble wand for $1.00, then went home and made our bubble mix. He was able to do all the mixing and the bubble wand was perfect for a 2 year old.
The World’s Best Bubbles

1 1/2 quarts of water

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1 cup liquid dish soap

Mix water and corn syrup until completely blended. Slowly stir in soap. Will last several weeks in an airtight container.

It was SO MUCH BETTER than the big jug of cheap stuff I usually buy.

He had so much fun with the big bubbles. The bubble wand was much easier for him than blowing in the little ones that usually come with bubbles. We had a great little bubble date.

Then these two came home and wanted to try.

It was all fun and games as long as Littlest Brother had the wand.

Big Brother even thought it would count as a bath if he rubbed the bubbles all over himself. It did didn’t.

Like I said, it was all fun and games as long as Littlest Brother had the bubble wand.

Sharing is hard stuff when you are two….or four….or six….or thirty.
