Our family is growing in many ways... Growing in numbers, knowledge, parenting skills, growing in love, in our faith, growing our culinary skills (if you can call it that), growing without gluten (some of us), growing green...........

Does anyone know a great recipe for your own bubbles?? Aiden has discovered bubbles and loves them, of course! It's amazing how such a simple thing like bubbles can fascinate children.

BUT I like to know what is in things, especially things I blow in my child's face and all over the blanket he plays on (and rubs his face in and lays his toys on - that he then puts all in his mouth...he tries to eat the blanket sometimes, too, so...). I have no idea what is actually IN the bubbles you buy, but homemade is most often better and cheaper (even though bubbles are pretty cheap to begin with).

So, if any of you have a great recipe and tips, please share! Thanks!!

I don't have a homemade recipe but I use California Baby Super Senitive No fragrence Bubble Bath for bubbles. It has a bubble wand in it so I went for it. Not exactly a less expensive option but it is safe.

I use plain old Ivory liquid dish detergent in water. I don't really have a recipe, just a couple of squirts in a cupful of water.
