Since we were basically housebound today I decided to recreate something we tried during our time in Alaska.
Okay, I admit it, it was something I tried while the boys were at school... but by the time they got home from school it was too cold and the bubbles froze before they even had a chance to form
(35F BELOW zero has a tendency to do that!)
Since it was only a mere 15F BELOW zero today... in Indiana (yes we broke plenty of records)
I decided it was time to recreate our experiment!
The wind was blowing to hard so all bubble blowing occurred within the garage...
with the 4 wheeler acting as our landing platform.
The "recipe" I used to make the bubble solution is a scaled down version of the one I used when I was a pre-school teacher long before the internet. In my experience this solution makes for a strong bubble which can be blown to large proportions during the warmer seasons and allows for bubble blowing when it is quite chilly out.
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 + 1 Tbsp dish soap
(i used 1/4 Dawn Ultra plus a heaping Tbsp of Mrs Meyers.. its what I had on hand)
plus enough corn syrup to bring the level to just over the 2 cup line.
mix the above mixture.
use a large straw
or a bubble wand
(what i used in Alaska)
to blow the bubbles.
This worked for me and I hope it works for you!
