Cover your hands with bubble solution. Then place your hands together as if to form a cup, leaving a small opening at the bottom.

Hold your mouth about one foot above your hands, and BLOW!

Homemade Bubbles
1/2 (500 ml) cup dish-washing liquid/soap
4-1/2 (4.5 liter) cup water
4 tablespoons (60 ml) glycerin

Measure out the water, detergent, and glycerin into container with a cover and stir gently.

Note: The longer you let the mixture set, the larger the bubbles are and the longer they seem to last.

Can you make bubbles bounce?

I wonder if I made this, if my dogs would appreciate it as much as kids might?

1 cup distilled drinking water
1 Tablespoon dish soap
1 Teaspoon of glycerin
1 straw (this is just what I chose to blow the bubbles with, I'm assuming you can use a typical bubble wand)
1 clean glove (or sock) - (this is to keep the bubble from popping)

Mix all ingredients together and let sit for 24 hours.

How fun would it be to make snake bubbles!?

This craft is so easy and I bet you already have all the supplies in your house. All you need is a plastic water or juice bottle.

Cut off the bottom, cover the raw edges with duct tape, dip in bubble solution and BLOW!

Have a contest to see who will make the longest snake!
