“Leprechaun Bubble Mix,” Friend, Mar. 2003, 33
1 cup grease-cutting dishwashing liquid
10 cups distilled water
3 tablespoons glycerin (available at drug stores)
green food coloring
Mix all the ingredients (stir; don’t shake) in a large bucket. Collect an assortment of large bubble wands. Hangers, colanders, spatulas—anything that has holes and can withstand being dunked in water will work. Use your imagination. Then head outdoors and fill the neighborhood with leprechaun bubbles by dipping the wand in the mixture and swishing it through the air.
