SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS/SNOW SCULPTURES

Looking for something to do in the cold weather and snow?

Creating a frozen bubble:

Find an area that is sheltered from the wind. Even the slightest breeze will carry your bubble.
Blow the bubbles high in the air so that as they float to the ground they have time to freeze.
Depending on your temperature/weather ~ it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few moments for the bubbles to freeze and start forming crystalline patterns.

Try blowing bubbles early in the morning or in the evening. This is the colder part of the day and will help your bubbles stay frozen.
Wave your wand instead of blowing into the wand to make bubbles. The warm air from your lungs causes the bubble to take longer to freeze.

Keep trying and see how it goes!

Snow Volcano Science

Snow Volcano
Materials

 

A cup or plastic bottle
Baking soda
Vinegar
Food colouring (if colour is desired)
Method
To make a snow volcano you will first need snow.  Take a plastic cup and set it on the ground in the snow. Then,  pile snow up and around the cup to form “the volcano”.

Once the volcano is formed add baking soda and food colouring to the cup which is now acting as the volcanoes core.Now, it is time to make it erupt! Pour in vinegar and then step back.

Or make some Disney snow sculptures for fun……….

Take a photograph to record your attempts!
