Bubbles never lose their charm

And when we were dying of boredom because we couldnt go outdoors on Sunday evening (we had quarantined ourselves because of Anjali's surgery), I found a very old bottle of bubbles that Ms Audrey had apparently according to Anjali given her when she was in N2, which, naturally she remembered and I didnt even though N2 was almost an year ago.

Anyway, I figured out how to make good bubbles. Ok ok, I knew that you should add glycerine, but I dont have glycerine at home and always forget to buy them from the pharmacy, but when I was cleaning the cupboards, I found some glucose syrup that husband had bought for the triathlons, and never used, preferring (I think with a good head) to use honey instead.

And what do you know, the glucose syrup has been sitting in the kitchen cupboard for over a year. And it makes the most beautiful bubbles.

We experimented with wands (kitchen rolls, pipe cleaners and Anjjali's favorite was a cookie cutter) 

See that huge bubble? I might try the cooker casket next once it serves its purpose as a loom

Another bubble
Here is the one that Anjali made out of the cookie cutter


  1. Ok that looks like fun! We made homemade bubbles a few times before and used kitchen items to blow them! FUN! Stopping by from Moms Library Link up
