- You definitely need glycerin to blow the big bubbles! I found a bottle of glycerin at Target; a 6oz bottle cost about $6. I couldn't find a bulk bottle of glycerin at Walgreens, but you can also order it on amazon. The more glycerin you add, the better the bubbles seem to stay together.
- The directions that we had said to store the bubble overnight in the fridge for best results, but we found that it worked fine right after mixing.
- Make more bubble solution than you think you will need.
- Bubbles work best on cool, cloudy days without much wind, but some wind will help the bubbles form.
2 8oz bottles of bubbles
1/4 cup glycerin
1/4 cup dishwashing liquid
2 cups water
1 cup dishwashing soap
3 tbsp glycerin
1/2 tsp sugar
For both recipe, just mix the ingredients in a large container (I use a large lidded yogurt container) and pour into the bubble tray. Both recipes worked well.
Ben was the only one who could get the big bubbles to work, but Amelia had fun using the wand to blow hundreds of little bubbles.
