Boiling Water Thrown In Freezing Air

It’s -22­° F with windchills in the -40° range in Minnesota today.  The governor of the state closed all public schools so the girls get an extra day of Christmas vacation.  What are we doing on this record cold day?  We’re doing freezing experiments!  We can only be outside for brief periods, but long enough to throw boiling water in the freezing air, make frozen bubbles, and put water out to guess how long it takes to freeze.

What you’ll need:

  • Boiling water
  • Below freezing temps outside

That’s it!  Watch the video below to see what happens:

Hubby didn’t find it all that fascinating but the girls and I thought it was cool. Have you tried to throw boiling water in cold air to watch it freeze?
