If you don’t have bubble mix or a bubble wand, you can make your own.
small container (deeper is better than wider)
10 mL (2 tsp) dish soap (Joy and Dawn work well)
60 mL (¼ cup) water
5 mL (1 tsp) glycerine (You don’t have to use it, but it will make the bubbles better. You can buy it in most drug stores.)
Thin wire – about 20 cm long (for making a bubble wand)
Mix all the ingredients together in the container. To make a bubble wand, bend the wire into a loop (a circle) at one end. (Make the loop about 5cm or 2 1/2 inches across.) You will dip the loop into the soap mixture and then gently blow through the loop to make bubbles. Wrapping yarn around the loop will help it hold more bubble solution.
Other bubble wand ideas: use a fly swatter, a hole cut in a plastic lid from a yogurt container, or your hands held in a circle shape.
HINT: The bubble mix is better the second day, so if you have the time, make it the day before.
