I was inspired to make these bubble wands, and I had to try it out. The first time it did not work for me. Cameron was the first to get it going!
Watch out, here it comes...I figured it out.
This is so much fun and a must try activity.
Wanna know how? Sure you do!
You will need: distilled water, glycerin, and Non-Ultra/Classic Dawn Original Scent. (I used Joy and it worked fine!)
Step 1: Into your Mixing bucket add 6 cups of Distilled Water.
Step 2: Stirring SLOWLY so as not to make lather, add in 2 cups of Non-Ultra/Classic Dawn Original Scent (or Ultra Dish detergent if necessary).
Step 3: Stir in 5-6 drops of Glycerin (double the amount if using Ultra detergent).
Here is another recipe link with great tips.
Tip: The first string we tried were thin. It worked, but I felt like I was fishing with my boys. You know, like getting the fishing line untangled from the tree or from a rock. It tangled up a lot. The next day we tried the thicker string and it worked great...no problems.
Finally, dip the string into the solution. Keep the dowels together and bring it out of the solution. Now, slowly open it up and walk backwards.
If at first you don't succeed, try again. It's worth it.
