With temperatures dropping this weekend, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the cold weather with a fun experiment!
Did you know that you can freeze bubbles? These temperatures are perfect for using that left over bubble mix from the summer. Go outside on any day when it’s below 32 degrees F and try this: blow a bubble and then catch it on the bubble wand. Wait a few moments while it freezes- it will turn into a cool crystal ball before it shatters!
You can also make icy crystals with your bubble solution! To do this: dip a large loop in the bubble solution – but don’t blow a bubble. Instead, watch the crystals grow. The will form a lattice structure!
Too cold to go outside? You can learn how to make your own crystal ball bubbles in the freezer with soap by checking out the site below…Experiments: Science Made Fun
