Alien Bubbles- Science

We took dry ice and made bubbles. It was super easy all you need is Dry Ice, an empty container with a tight fitting lid, a tube, a funnel, duct tape, bubble solution and a container to put it in.
And you can make these amazing bubbles
You just put the funnel in the bubble solution and all the gas from the dry ice creates smoke filled bubbles
When you pop them the smoke lingers it is pretty awesome
Catching a Bubble
popping the Bubble isn’t that fantastic.
The funnel made huge bubbles

Pop!
Smaller bubbles




The contraption

Add hot water fast and close quickly
This was one of my favorite projects ever. We will definitely be doing it again!

    Awesome!!!! Thank you!

  3. This is incredible! My girls would love this. Now I just have to try and figure out where in the world I can get dry ice around here!
    Thanks for sharing this at the outdoor play party.

  4. Did you just put the hose in a hole in the side of the container with dry ice? I can’t wait to try this.

      Yes, I made a hole up at the top of the container and attached the hose there with duct tape (you want it to be as air tight as possible).

  5. wow thats such a brilliant idea, i love it. Where do you buy dry ice?

  6. We made these in my preschool today. SO cool. Thanks for sharing the instructions. I wrote about it on my blog.

    Isn’t dry ice a little on the dangerous side to have around kids so young?

    • debra92691 says:

      this activity is one that needs to be heavily supervised. The children are not allowed to touch the dry ice. It is put in the “contraption” by an adult. That being said you should not do any activity with kids that you are not comfortable with. My kids and I love this activity. So do the children in their class.

    Wow. This is such an awesome experiment to do with the kids. Thank You
