“You are an aperture through which the universe is
looking at and exploring itself.”

I saw a frozen bubble on Pinterest recently which launched an experiment at our house. My goal? Snap a beautiful photograph of a frozen bubble. I tested my store purchased bubbles to see if the solution would produce a lovely frozen bubble on our coldest day this winter.
The bubble bottle’s label proclaims “wand inside” but this product is flawed. There is no magic wand inside! I improvised using a wine bottle opener (creative, huh?) as my wand. Despite temperatures in the 3 degree range there were no frozen bubbles. None.
Next, I attempted a homemade bubble solution in my frozen bubble quest.
- Pour the water into a bucket.
- Pour the dishwashing soap into the water. Mix solution gently with a wooden spoon.
- Pour the Karo into the solution mixing gently. Try to avoid creating bubbles as you stir.
The homemade solution created beautiful bubbles, but no official frozen bubbles.
Frozen fingers? Yes.
I had mild success with a small wand and tiny bubbles…
My family members recommend I launch the bubbles from the balcony to allow more time for the bubbles to freeze before landing. I have yet to test this theory… Do you have suggestions?
This bubble quest has added laughter to our coldest days. But, I am officially ready for warmer days and making giant bubbles. Last year I made this bubble making kit.
