Simple Bubble Mix:
1/4 cup Joy brand dish washing detergent (other brands don't work as well)
1/2 cup water
a few drops of food coloring
1 tsp sugar
Mix together and put into a container with a lid. Let the mixture age for 2-3 days before using.
Gooey Bubble Mix:
1 cup Joy brand dish washing detergent (other brands don't work as well)
3 cups water
6 tablespoons light corn syrup
Mix together and let sit for a few hours before using. This mixture is best for toddlers and for making huge bubbles because it stays together better. It does make the ground more slippery where bubbles pop though!
