Blowing bubbles is a fun activity to do with children. My son has loved them since he was a toddler. This is why we often do experiments that involve bubbles. In this post, we will show you how to do an easy science experiment for kids at home. Your child will learn how to make catchable bubbles.
Doing this project was exciting because bubbles pop once they touch your hands. However, this time, my son was able to catch and hold the bubbles.
My son received this kit for Christmas from a family member. He was so excited when he opened this present. The National Geographic Magic Science Kit has 10 experiments and comes with most of the materials you need within the kit. The other materials are items you have in your home like water.
The only materials you need (from your home) for the Bubbles experiment are…
We have completed three out of ten experiments in the kit so far. They all have a magical scientific component to it, which amazes kids. Most importantly, they are easy science experiments for kids at home.
In the video, below, we will show you what’s inside the kit and how we used it to make catchable bubbles.
This video below comes from my son’s YouTube Channel, Corban’s Fun Adventures and Learning. We have a lot of DIY projects, science experiments, and learning games there. Please subscribe if you like what you see.
Spring is here and this is a time for bubbles! The first time my son, Cory, saw bubbles he was a baby. He was so amazed at how they floated in the air and then disappeared (popped). Once he started to walk, Cory had a great time chasing the bubbles and popping them.
Now that my son is older, he likes to experiment with various types of bubbles. We don’t buy bubble solution from the store anymore because we make our own with various ingredients. We have made Giant Bubbles, small bubbles, Bubble Pipes, Unpoppable Bubbles etc.
My son wanted to do something new. He decided to create DIY Bubble Soap with layers on our dining room table. I didn’t know if it would work; however, it turned out to be a success.
Try this activity with your children. They will find joy in first, creating a bubble on a table. Then, they will be amazed at how they can create bubble layers. It became a fun challenge for my son.
This is a great science project for kids. They will see how three ingredients can be mixed together to create the bubbles one usually purchases in stores or online.
DIY Bubble Soap with Layers
In the video below, my son shows you how it is done.
One day my son and I went to the Dollar Tree to buy pans for our next science experiment.While we were there, my son found a big bubble wand with a tray, and asked if we could get it. I told him “yes” because it looked like fun.
I thought we could incorporate science into the bubble play by making our own bubble solution. When we got home, he could not wait to try out his new wand. He also suggested that we try other bubble wands as well. We looked around the house and got pipe cleaners, a straw, tape, and paper.
We took the materials and attempted to make bubble pipes with three different materials. They were simple to make and fun to use. We stayed outside for over an hour playing. The various wands we used made the bubble play interesting and engaging. I will show you what we did below.
