Recipe for Glowing Fun!
- Ingredients for Glow:
- 1 cup Distilled Water
- 1 Tablespoon Dawn Dish Soap
- 1 Teaspoon Glycerin (Find this in the pharmacy section; it’s your secret ingredient for stronger, bigger bubbles!)
- 2 Tablespoons Water-Based Glow-in-the-Dark Paint
- Straw or Bubble Wand
Creating Your Glowing Bubble Mixture:
- Mixing Magic: Combine water, dish soap, and glycerin in a jar. Stir until well-blended. Glycerin adds strength and elasticity to your bubbles, making them bigger and more durable.
- Colorful Glow: Divide the mixture into two jars. Add 1 tablespoon of glow paint to each jar for two different colored glows. Mix thoroughly.
- Patience and Preparation: Cover and let the jars sit for 24 hours. For an extra sparkle, place the jars in sunlight a few hours before use.
- Blacklight Boost: For an extra wow factor, blow the bubbles near a blacklight. They’ll light up brilliantly! You can swap out your porch light for a black light temporarily too!
Tips for Bubble-Blowing Success:
- Water Quality Matters: Distilled water ensures your bubbles aren’t affected by any chemicals or minerals in tap water.
- Glowing Paint: Choose water-based glow paint for safety and easy mixing.
