Investigate Bubbles - Can you make your own bubbles? who can make the biggest bubble?
- 50ml washing-up liquid (one part)
- 300ml water (six parts)
1. Measure the washing-up liquid into a container, such as a jam jar or glass bottle.
2. Slowly add in the water, being careful not to create too many bubbles at this stage. Gently stir the mixture together to combine – a chopstick is perfect for this.
3. If you can, let the bubble mixture rest before using it, as it will make your bubbles even better.
4. When you’re ready, dip your bubble wand into the mixture and start blowing bubbles!
Ways to make a home-made bubble wand:
If you don’t have a wand from a store-bought pot of bubbles, don’t despair! You can have fun by looking for different items around the house that can be used to make bubbles. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Paperclips – bend them into wands or use as they are
- Biscuit cutters
- Pipe cleaners
- Fly swatters
