Make these soap bubbles to learn about surface tension and water in these easy science experiments.
You will need
small bottle of glycerin
Bubble mixture recipe
1 T glycerin
Mix the ingredients above together in a small container.
Dishwashing liquid can stretch out very thinly, so it stretches across the wand or loop and even around the pockets of air that you blow into it to create a bubble.
Mix about 4 times the quantity of bubble mixture above in a larger, flattish container.
See my son, at age four, below with his giant bubbles created with a modified coat hanger!
