Giant Soap Bubbles

No childhood is complete without making bubbles!

Joy OR Dawn liquid dish soap
(these brands work the very best.)
cold water
frying pan
metal coat hanger
glycerin (can be found at a drug store)

Bend the coat hanger into a loop
(this is the hardest part)
Mix 1/2 cup of detergent with 5 cups of water.
Measure CAREFULLY - it makes a big difference.
Stir well. Add 2 tablespoons of glycerin.
Pour mixture into the frying pan,
dip the coat hanger loop into the solution,
then wave it through the air for
the biggest bubbles you've ever seen.

Can use cookie cutters with a coat hanger wire wrapped around one corner of it for a handle.
