How to Make Bouncy Bubble Solution

Do you have kids? Do they love to play bouncy bubbles? I observe kids love to play bouncy bubbles.They enjoy the different colors of bubbles floating in the air.isn't it?
For moms, I will share you a recipe how to make bouncy bubble solution so that you can save buying from your kids.

All-Purpose Bubble Solution
This solution is great for most bubble tricks, activities, and experiments.

◦1 part water to 1 part Johnson’s Baby Shampoo
Johnson’s Baby Shampoo produces much better bubbles than any of the dish detergents we tried. Mix the ingredients gently and let the solution stand for a couple of hours.

Bouncy Bubble Solution
You can bounce these bubbles off your clothes!

◦1 package unflavoured gelatin (e.g. Knox brand)
◦250 ml (1 cup) hot water (just boiled)
◦50–70 ml glycerine*
◦250 ml Johnson’s Baby Shampoo
Dissolve the gelatin in the hot water. Add the shampoo and glycerine. Stir gently. This solution will gel as it cools. Reheat it carefully in the microwave (about two minutes).

About glycerine
What does the glycerine do?

Glycerine helps soap bubbles hold water, so that they last longer. It’s very helpful if you’re doing bubble tricks, but less important if you’re mixing up a bucket of bubble solution for preschoolers to mess about with.

Where do I get glycerine?

Most pharmacies carry glycerine. You’ll only need a small bottle.

How much glycerine should I use?

We’re not precise about it. Try 1–3 teaspoons for about a litre of bubble solution.
