|Making frozen bubblesWhat You’ll Need:
Spoon or whisk
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.
