Homemade Bubbles

By: Laura

Winter is officially over (I think) and spring is in full bloom here in Nebraska.  It's been a long time coming, but it finally feels like we can go outside without bundling up to the nines!  Ella and I have been enjoying fun in the sun with many activities, such as park adventures, sidewalk chalk drawings, tricycle rides, and, of course, bubbles.  I mean, no toddler home is complete without bubbles.  Unfortunately, I was without bubbles earlier this week and Ella was in total bubble mode, so instead of getting in the car and heading to the store, I decided to get on Pinterest to find a quick recipe.  Now, there were a ton there, but I needed one that was fast, easy, and included ingredients I had at home.  The following recipe was the easiest I found and therefore the best:

1 cup of water
1/3 cup of dish soap
1/6 cup of honey

All we had to do was dump them in a container, shake them up and we were ready to go bubble crazy. Take a look at that.

Here is Ella getting the bubbles ready.  We just used an old bubble container we had in the garage. 

More dipping...

Nearly ready...

And there you have it, beautiful bubbles!

Now, I will say that this recipe worked just fine, but the bubbles weren't very plentiful. Meaning, if you're looking for bubbles galore, this might not be the recipe for you, but if you have a bubble emergency, these will do the trick.  I think Ella and I will continue our search for the best homemade recipe, but that should be easy considering summer is fast approaching.
