These floating, shimmering spheres are an absolute hit with children of many ages, and they are really simple to make at home. You can make your own bubbles by mixing 6 cups of warm water with ½ a cup of corn starch, making sure the corn starch is dissolved. Next add ½ of cup dish soap, 1 tablespoon of baking powder and 1 tablespoon of glycerine – and voila! You have beautiful bubbles and endless hours of fun.
This bubble mixture is also perfect for turning into another day of entertainment. Use it for bubble painting by separating the mixture into small plastic bowls and adding a drop of your favourite coloured food colouring to each dish. Blow the bubbles onto a sheet of white paper and watch a beautiful picture take shape.
