On our second attempt, we still have not managed to make a good batch of BIG bubbles. I bought the bubble wand at Michaels and it came with a recipe: 1 c. dish soap, 12 cups water, 1 c. corn starch, 2 tbsp. baking powder
We waited an hour to let the mix sit and then gave it a try. Bubbles in the bucket, but no bubbles from the big bubble wand.
So we added more dish soap. Lots of bubbles in the bucket now.
And we added more dish soap. The boys got bored with waiting for the bubbles and went off to do other stuff. I wish they were going off to clean the garage but alas, they were not. Whoa is me.
The girls didn’t give up though. They finished off the entire bottle of dish soap.
And got a bubble that formed in the wand and actually flew away into the hot afternoon.
Next time I’ll buy the bubble mix, :-)
