There’s some serious “wow” factor to this little bubble experiment, the perfect way to turn a ho-hum morning into something special!
To make the bubble solution, pour 1/4 cup water into a container. Add a little blue food coloring just so it’s easier to see.
Stir in 1 tablespoon dish soap and 2 tablespoons corn syrup.
A straw will be your bubble blower, but the secret now is that you also need a pencil.Travis dipped the pencil tip in the solution, as I dipped in the straw and blew a bubble.
He poked the saturated pencil tip into the bubble… and the bubble doesn’t break!
If you want a quick run-down of what’s happening here, basically the “skin” of the bubble merges with the soapy surface of the pencil tip, so that no air gets in and makes the bubble pop. If you try it with a dry pencil, you’ll get a pop right away! We had fun seeing how far in we could poke the pencil.
And then had lots of extra bubble solution to blow out on the back patio!
