Bubble Solution Recipe

Bubble Solution Recipe

  by Sandra Merville Hart It was challenging to find bubble solution during the pandemic. We played in the backyard so often that we quickly went through a gallon of bubble solution. If you also had that problem, here is an easy recipe. Ask your parents or another adult for help making it. This simple recipe mostly fills a standard 28-ounce bottle of bubble solution. Save those old bottles and make your own.   Use a medium-sized bowl. 1 ½ cups dish soap 4 ½ cups water 2 tablespoons sugar   Combine these together gently or you’ll have lots of bubbles in the bowl.

The Story of St. Patrick

The Story of St. Patrick

March 17th is celebrated each year as St. Patrick’s Day. This is a special day in Ireland because it celebrates the life of St. Patrick who brought the story of Jesus to their country. One of the things St. Patrick used to tell the Irish about God was a shamrock. He told them the three leaves of the shamrock represented the Trinity. That helped them understand and the shamrock became a symbol for St. Patrick.
