Works for Me Wednesday

After a nice vacation we are back! My tip this week for WFMW is a fun activity for the kids. Making your own bubbles! We had a BLAST doing this today and the solution works sooooooo much better than the kind we just bought at the store. So, here is the recipe we used…..I heard if you are able to let it stand for awhile it works even better. BTW you can buy glycerin at the pharmacy, it is really inexpensive, ours was 2 bucks! For more tips be sure to visit Rocks in my Dryer!

2/3 cup Joy dishwashing soap
1 gallon water
2 to 3 tablespoons of glycerin

Isn’t it GREAT!?!? I love it! It’s from IKEA and we use it for everything, keys, bills, and (this is where the kitchen tip comes in……jotting down things we run out of, like MILK,BREAD,EGGS, ETC. My older boys are old enough to use it too and they have gotten pretty good at it so I always check on “the board” before we go to bed to see if I need to shop for anything in the morning. This is especially handy for school lunches and such. So…..there it is…my first tip. ENJOY! Oh, and for more tips, head over to Rocks in my Dryer , I always learn SO much!
