Bubble Trubble!

So Jack got this really great bubble kit for his birthday-a SPILL PROOF bubble bottle!

 See the cool little spill proof lips on the cap???

Well, the bubbles are now long gone from hours of outdoor fun...but throw the bottle away?  Forget it!  This is the only bubble bottle that lasted for more than a minute (Jack spills easily!)

Now I know you can get a giant bottle of bubble refill from Walmart or I could go the the Dollar Tree and get a bunch of little bottles...but I am way to thrifty for that.

I decided to make my own...super easy...with (I'm sure you've heard of this) dish soap! 

Super easy steps:
Step1: Clean out the bottle.
Step 2: Add a little bit of dish soap.
Step 3: Fill with water and shake gently.
Step 4:  Enjoy your homemade bubbles!

Easy fix for a thrifty mom!
