Bubbles Galore!
By Brandie Valenzuela


Bubbles! What child can resist bubbles? Not mine, they
love them and well, so do I. There is something so peaceful
and calming about a floating bubble, and kids just squeal with delight when you hand them some bubble solution and a wand!

Many stores sell bubble solution, and while not a bad
alternative, it can really add up if you have a true bubble
loving bunch! I have compiled for you several bubble recipes
that are all easy to make. Try your hand at one or more of
them - the kids will love you for it!
