The last few days have been crazy and busy, with lots of big emotions for our little humans, which is why I’ve neglected to post anything. We currently live in a townhouse and it’s starting to feel a bit crowded, even though the weather is getting nicer and we’re spending more time outside. Today, although it’s nice out, were lounging around the house and playing with toys. My daughter has a recent obsession with dumping out our bubble solution, which I spent good money on. I keep seeing tons of DIY recipes and I tried a couple last summer, that just kind of work. I think the reason so there are so that claim to be he beat recipe is because everyone’s water is treated differently and the region (even the city) you live in can impact that greatly. So now I’m on a mission to find out which one works well for us.
Today’s mix is 2 1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup corn syrup, and 1/2 blue (basic) dawn. We’ll be testing it out shortly (as the water and corn syrup needed to be heated in the microwave to get the syrup evenly distributed). I used an empty ketchup bottle to store it, since that’s what I had on hand.
This bubble solution is pretty decent, the only weird thing is that they leave a sticky white residue where they pop (see pictures below). I imagine this is due to the corn syrup.
The weird residue that is left behind, you can actually see it fall from the sky when they pop.
