- Ready In:
- 5 cups water
- 1⁄2 cup dish detergent (Ultra Dawn, not green color)
- mix 1/2 cup of Ultra Dawn dish detergent (not the green color)with 5 cups of water. measure carefully, because it makes a big difference in the elasticity of the bubbles. Stir.
- Add two tablesppons of glycerine (this comes from a pharmacy). It makes the bubbles more durable.
- Getting ready: The hardest part is getting your coat hanger to bend into a big loop, have your grown up assistant help you).
- dip the coat hander loop into the solution, then wave in the air!
- Bubbles are better in cool, wet weather. Early evenings & mornings work best. Just after rain is ideal. Save your bubbles, since the longer it sits, the better it gets.

Okay- I am a crazy teacher. At the end of the year, I try to plan various crazy activities that get the kids outside, and making things. Well, last year we had a bubble making contest. This was the recipe that I used (although you mention glycerine in the steps, you do not in the ingredients). The kids LOVED it. It was VERY messy though. Again, you will need to hose the kids down afterwards :)
