Joy is simply producing a whopping, great bubble…and wanting to do it again, and again, and again…


Yesterday, we finally go our giant bubble mixture to really work…YAAAAAAYYYYYY!


The recipe was:

One and a half teaspoons of guar gum (bought from Amazon).

Mixed with enough glycerin (from local chemist) to turn it into a paste.

To which 4 litres of hottest tap water is slowly added.

And a tablespoon of baking powder.

Then finally 6 oz of the best fairy liquid you can buy (we used platinum).

(The trick is lots of vigorous stirring..and then let it sit for 20 minutes).


(The bubbles wands are simply made from wooden spoons and cotton string, tied in a triangular shape with a weight (keys/keyrings work well) at the bottom).

We learnt that if you blew into the bubble..

You could get bubbles inside the bubble!


Hours and hours of pure, unadulterated FUN!
