2 cups water
1/2 cup liquid dish soap
1/8 cup corn syrup
large container for mixing
Pour all the ingredients into a large container and shake it up. (Empty milk bottles or Tupperware containers with a tight seal work great.) Allow the bubbles to settle for a few minutes before using.
These bubbles worked great, although I noticed once the solution sat in the bottle for a couple of days, I had to shake it up to remix the solution.
Abe loves bubbles. Even before he could talk, he figured out where I kept the bubbles, and would sit there pointing up at the shelf waiting for me to figure out what he wanted. No wonder "bubbles" was one of his first words!
Of course, bubbles are even more fun when you have a friend to share them with!
You can always make your own bubble wands, but if you start out with store-bought bubbles, hang onto the wands after the bubbles are gone. Trust me, you can never have too many bubble wands!
