1/4 cup  Liquid Dishwashing Soap*
1/2 cup  Water
1 tsp  Sugar  -or-
3 tsp  Glycerine**

DISSOLVE the sugar into the water then add the dishwashing soap.

STORE the bubble solution in a sealable container such as a soda bottle or mayonnaise jar.

DISPENSE the solution into a flat container, like a plastic plate or pie tin, for easy use.

BLOW bubbles using just about anything you can think of to make bubbles -- plastic straws, thumb-and-forefingers, cut out paper cups, old cloths hangers... be creative!

* Be sure to use liquid dishwashing soap, like Dawn, and not Automatic Dishwashing Machine Soap.

** Glycerine works better than sugar to help stabilize the blown bubbles and gives a shiny appearance. Glycerine can be found in most pharmacies.

NOTE: This solution is safe for plants. Liquid soap shouldn't contain phosphates and is okay for grass and other vegetation.
