How to Make Frozen Bubbles

 

Try this winter experiment for soapy fun. Using soap bubbles, you’ll turn them into frozen bubbles.

What You’ll Need:

Measuring cup

Soap powder

Sugar

Hot water

Bowl

Spoon or whisk

Bubble wand

This is an activity for a cold, cold (below freezing) day when there is no wind in the air. Start by making a strong bubble solution. Mix 1/2 cup soap powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 cups hot water. (This mixture will help the bubbles last longer.) Take the bubble solution and a bubble wand outside. Blow a bubble, and catch it on the wand. Let the bubble sit resting on the wand in the cold air. In the below-freezing chill, the bubble will soon freeze into a fragile crystal ball. What do you think?
