BIG BUBBLES?

No troubles....
Grandpa was asked to make some bubbles and a bubble-maker
for a Primary activity.

Lexi had a great time.
She was trying to get into a bubble.

Some of them were bigger than she was!

It was fun experimenting with the recipe to get perfect bubbles.

2 quarts distilled water
6 tablespoons corn syrup
1/3 C dawn dish soap

I wish summer could last another few months!

Awesome bubbles and wonderful grandpa. Thanks for sharing the recipe, what did he use to form the bubbles, was it pipe? Did it need to be a closed circle or triangle?

I learned when I was a little girl that I could make big bubbles using my mouth. If I washed my hair in the bath tub, I would slink under the water and the soapy water would go over my mouth and I could blow a gigantic bubble. Too bad I couldn't see how big, with my eyes below water. The things you thought you could do as a child!

While I love summer I'm definitely ready for it to move on along - this year the heat and humidity has made arthritis a very definite enemy. However, that being said, maybe just a few more days so I can do some bubbles like that! blessings, marlene
