Bubble Fun

We had a great time with bubbles at today's program.  Many people asked about Ms. Fayth's homemade bubble solution.  Here's the recipe she used:

 

1 gallon water

2/3 cup Dawn dishwashing liquid (the blue kind)

3 tablespoons glycerin (buy it at a drugstore or grocery store)

 

Have fun!
