Homemade Bubble Solution

Homemade Bubble Solution

Kids love bubbles!  They are fascinated with the rainbow of colors floating through the air.  Homemade soap bubbles are easy to make for little or no money at all.  I bet you will find these ingredients right in your kitchen, without having to use glycerin.  Glycerin bubbles last longer but can be expensive to use.
