Is there any kid (or adult) who doesn’t love to play with bubbles?
Chasing after bubbles being blown by the wind is fun but it gets boring really fast and sometimes the bubbles pop too quickly. If your kids love bubbles then here’s how you can make them at home for cheap and the best part? These bubbles are unpoppable!
Your kids will have extra fun playing outside with these DIY unpoppable bubbles! Of course, these bubbles are not going to last forever but at least they won’t pop immediately upon contact. You can also take this as an opportunity to teach your kids a little bit about science!
Soap bubbles are normally made up of three laters — soap, water, and another layer of soap that makes a soap film ‘sandwich’. Bubbles pop when the water between these layers evaporate and by adding glycerin, these films become thicker, making the bubbles evaporate less quickly.
Isn’t this a great science project to do with the kids?
You’ll need these materials:
- 2 cups of water
- ¼ dish soap
- 2 tablespoons of glycerin
And these tools…
- Large bowl
- Cotton gloves
