We’ve made what were supposed to be super strong bubbles before, but nothing quite like this.
Hip Homeschool Moms has a video from Labracadabra that shows how to make and play with bubbles that aren’t literally unpoppable but do stick around for a long time and can bounce on a microfiber glove.
All you need is water, dish soap and corn syrup to make these bubbles, and they’re a great science lesson because you can talk about why bubbles pop (because the water in the bubbles evaporates) and why these bubbles last longer (the corn syrup forms a weak bond with the hydrogen in the water molecules, making evaporation take longer).
Plus they’re just really fun to play with. If you have a place indoors you don’t mind doing it, this is a great cold-weather or rainy day activity, too.
Have you ever tried this recipe? How did it work?
