I wish I loved anything like kids love bubbles

Chenille Stem Bubble Wands - talk about cheap fun!
This wand looks like something a fairy would leave on your doorstep.

Some Bubble Solution Recipes:

Cyndi's Bubble Recipes
from the Nathan's Wish web site

1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid (Dawn or Joy)
2 cups of water
2 teaspoons of sugar
Cyndi suggests adding a dab of food coloring for colorful bubbles. Mix the solution and place in a shallow pan (or refill your old bubble containers). NOTE: More recipes and fun with bubbles are available at the website link above.

p.s. and I'm not judging here, but you might be a little crazy if you need your bubble solution to be organic, but you could make this with your organic dishwashing liquid and organic sugar. 

Ann Hallock's Recipe
from the Family.com web site

Ann says: "This recipe is a winner. It's easy to mix up--and inexpensive to boot. Simply stir together 6 parts water, 2 parts Joy dishwashing liquid (this brand works the best), and 3/4 part corn syrup. Store in a covered container. Have your kids try experimenting with a variety of homemade bubble wands: pipe cleaners bent into interesting shapes, cookie cutters, yogurt lids with the centers cut out, and so on. For a giant bubblemaker, cut off the top and bottom of a large metal can with a can opener and hammer the inside edges until they are smooth (a parent's job). Dip either end in the solution and wave through the air."

Put corn syrup or sugar is in place of going to the pharmacy and getting glycerin. 


To be honest, we just mix a few drops of dish soap in with water and call it a day around our house.  It usually ends up spilled anyway.
