Homemade Bubbles

Anyone who has young children knows that when the sun comes out for spring, it signals that it is officially bubble season. We go through tons of this slimey stuff. It's fun to blow bubbles, but it's almost more fun to dump it out on the sidewalk, deck, or in the pool, whatever.

This year I am determined to save money cutting corners where I don't always cut corners. Buying gallons of bubbles in tiny plastic bottles through the summer is a waste. Why bother with the tiny plastic bottles in the first place?

This was a very easy recipe, we had great results!

6 parts water
2 parts joy or dawn liquid dish soap
3/4 parts karo syrup
a few drops of food coloring

mix it up -TA DA! and super cheap!
