Do you remember the first bubble you ever blew or the fun you had from simply popping them? How about the first time you were able to blow a bubble inside another bubble? Bubbles are a natural phenomenon. The sport of bubble blowing dates back as far as the 17th century but its popularity didn’t start growing until people began using soap more regularly. Blowing bubbles is perfect for an afternoon activity, bath time and even car rides (put the wand up to the air vent). Only a few ingredients are needed to make DIY eco-friendly bubbles.
Mix the ingredients together in a storage container and allow the bubble mix to sit for at least four hours. It works the best if you allow it to sit overnight. Pour the bubble solution into a shallow dish and dip the wand into it.Gently wave the wand around or blow into the ring to produce bubbles. You can store extra bubbly solution for up to a month in an air-tight container. Visit www.greenandcleanmom.org for more instruction and ideas.
It’s just as easy to make a bubble wand as it is to make the bubbly solution. You can find items throughout your house to reuse or recycle into your wand. For instance, you can resuse the plastic rings that hold together a six pack of soda (leave as one piece or cut into single rings). To make the handle on your wand, there are tons of options: leftover straws, a stick from your backyard, a pencil, etc.
