Frozen Bubbles

We’ve had a cold winter this year in Minnesota. Though most of the time we keep our kids indoors when the weather is well below freezing, there are times when sub 0°F can be a lot of fun!

Take bubbles for example…they are a summertime or indoor activity, correct?  No!  Take them outside when it’s below freezing and watch what happens!

The colder the temp outside the faster the magic happens, however, don’t go outside when it’s too cold or you won’t be able to do it for long. Also a bit of a hint, make sure it’s pretty calm outside. Any breeze and your bubbles will fly away before you get to play with them.

Don’t have bubble solution or a bubble wand? No problem! Make the solution out of dish soap and water. Use a straw as a wand.

Experiment by blowing a bubble, letting it freeze, then taking it inside. What happens?

Freezing bubbles was a ton of fun with my girls and I’m sure your kids will have just as much fun!
