60 Second Science: Ice Bubbles

Ice Bubbles are weird and wonderful science, and a fun way to spend time outdoors in winter. Bundle up!

What you will need:

Bubble solution

Bubble blower

Chill the bubble solution before using. On a windless day below 32 degrees go outdoors and gently blow a bubble. If the temperature is around 25-30 degrees catch it back in the wand without releasing it. Keep the bubble on the wand and you should be able to see ice crystals forming until the bubble freezes completely into a clear bubble of ice. When it is colder than 25 degrees, blow the bubble up into the air, and it should freeze before it drops to the ground.
