Today Kelsey had a science experiment to do. We were learning about surface tension and bubbles and what happens when you touch a bubble with a wet straw versus a dry one. (The dry straw will make it pop, by the way.) What we have ended up with is hours of bubble fun for all of us!
So here's what you do. Stir together 1/2 c. dishwashing liquid with 1 quart water and pour it into a shallow pan. Get a straw, and start blowing bubbles.
To make a really large bubble, dip the tip of the straw just under the surface of the water. Blowing gently, lift the tip of the straw out of the water and watch the bubble grow.
Next, take the straw carefully out of the large bubble. Dip it again in the water.
Gently put the wet tip of the straw back through the side of the bubble and blow another bubble inside the large one. This is so cool and will keep your kids (and even you!) occupied for hours...
And yes, I know I need to cut her bangs. She and I argue about this regularly.
