Bubbles Bubbles Everywhere!
Last Summer when my sister and her family were visiting from Australia we went on an Amish tour. I have lived here for about 10 years and hadnt done this yet. On the tour we had a tour guide in our car and as we drove around going to each location he would give us information about Amish life. One of the places we stopped was an Amish toy store. So many cool wooden toys to play with. We ended up buying some bubble wands that make giant bubbles. It comes with the recipe that makes the best bubbles. While my sister was here we didnt get a chance to get the ingredients for the bubbles so the wands have been sitting around waiting to be used. Forward to a year later and we finally got what we needed to make our giant bubbles. The recipe is 10 cups of water, 1 cup of Dawn dish washing detergent and 1 tablespoon of glycerin, I use 2 tablespoons of glycerin.
Victoria absolutely loves to make bubbles. She could do it for hours and hours. Apparently making giant bubbles is the best thing ever. Its highly addictive and I recommend it for everyone. We found the best bubble making time is a Summer evening when the air is still and its cooling down. The bubbles last a long time and look so pretty.
We had some friends stop by when we were making bubbles and they just had to try it. Once they started they didnt want to stop either. I think bubble making brings out the kid in all of us.
Ahhhh here is a shot of Victoria admiring her giant bubble.
