By the time February rolls around, it’s time to start embracing the freezing temperatures and enjoy the cold that’s here to stay for a little while longer. Sledding, snowman making, and snowball fights are all great ways to have fun when the temperature dips, but what do you do when the weather goes below 10 degrees and its even too cold for those activities? Snow bubbles!
You can easily make these beautiful snow bubbles when the temperature is in the single digits, but they are even more impressive if you can make them in temperatures below zero degrees Fahrenheit.
If you have any leftover bubble soap from the summer you can use that, but if you have a little extra time we recommend making this homemade bubble solution below:
Homemade Bubble Solution
- 3 cups of water
- 1/2 cup of corn syrup
- 1 cup clear dishwashing soap
Stir the water and corn syrup together in a bowl. Be careful not to stir so much that you get bubbles. Add the dish soap and mix well. That’s it!
Pour the bubble solution into a shallow dish. Give your child a straw and let them blow a large bubble into the dish. Watch as the bubble forms small crystals before it slowly freezes. You can ‘pop’ it with your finger and watch as the sides crumple in instead of pop like a normal bubble would do.
