Low cost simple pleasures or back to basics parenting #5 - Homemade bubbles

This weeks bubble pleasure has been brought to you because I was sent @hitofhappiness and it contained some bubble mixture in it.  

My boys adore bubbles and they didn't even get out of their school uniform, they just got hold of those bubbles and off they went! 

They spent a good hour out blowing bubbles (I did top up their mixture) and it was such fun.

You can even make your own with  1 cup water, 2 tablespoons glycerin and 4 tablespoons washing up liquid, so you never need be without bubbles!

  1. So glycerin is the magic ingredient. I have tried various concentrations of washing up liquid with out success! Thanks for sharing.

  2. ooooh glycerin - is that available from chemists? i musty google this and make some with my boys because they love bubble blowing and it would save me from buying some next time i run out! thank you x

  3. I've not heard of that and always just diluted washing up liquid

  4. Ah, you add glycerin... Must try that :) My lot LOVE bubbles!

  5. My wee man loves bubbles too! I carry them around with me now. Must now invest in some glycerin!

  6. ooh how fab never knew the recipe for bubbles! thanks

  7. What gorgeous photos! We got the super Hit of happiness box too :)

  8. Even at the ripe old age of 40, I LOVE bubbles! There's just something so fun and magical about them, isn't there? My girls always have loads of fun with their bubble machine. Am definitely trying out your recipe too!!! xx

    1. I love how simple it is to make bubble mixture at home and what pleasure blowing bubbles gives to young and old. Love the pics and just stopping by from Country Kids
