Winter Bubble Magic

Click here for a printable version of this idea

10 cups of water
1 cup of dishwashing detergent, preferably Joy or Dawn
1/4 cup glycerin (available at natural food and craft stores)
plastic bucket
plastic bubble wand
1. Mix the water, detergent, and glycerin in a bucket.

2. Take the bucket and bubble wand outside on a really cold day, when the thermometer is reading 0 degrees or below.

3. Dip your wand in the bucket and blow gently through the wand to create a bubble. What happened to your bubble? Did it freeze? What happens when you blow your bubbles out into the cold winter wind?

4. Try to keep your bubble on the wand. Allow the bubble to freeze. What happens to the bubble's color when it freezes? Experiment with your bubbles on different days. How does the temperature affect the bubbles?
