Instead of going to the local fast food restaurant down the street, why not pack a picnic basket with some food and head down to your local park. Bring a Frisbee or a tennis ball, or even make your eco-friendly bubbles. All you need is ½ cup of eco-friendly detergent, 5 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerin or light corn syrup. Mix the ingredients together and leave in a container overnight or for a minimum of 4 hours. Then used recycled objects in your home, such as hangers and straws, to create bubble wands.
