Erupting Bubbles

Erupting Bubbles by Breana Mieszanek Wooley

Breana and her family live in Corpus Christi, Texas. Breana is busy doing lots of activities with her family and often shares their adventures on her Facebook Page.
Today Breana is our featured guest blogger and she shares a great activity called Erupting Bubbles.

Growing Bubbles Fun

Erupting bubbles as my 4 year old daughter, A, called it. 

This activity was entertaining and very contagious. My husband, who rarely partakes in 'our activities', couldn't resist the fun when he heard our laughs coming from the kitchen.

I saw the Bubble Science experiments on the Little Bins for Little Hands and knew we had to do this activity right away. I set off to the kitchen in search of the supplies, luckily we had all of the items in our pantry.

Supplies Needed:

1 Cup of Water
2 Tablespoons of Light corn syrup
4 Tablespoons of Dish soap (we used apple scented)
Container (we did this experiment multiple times and preferred a larger container)
Tablespoon and measuring cup
Straw (the longer the better)
Towels (to mop spillages) 

First A measured, combined, and stirred all the ingredients into one large measuring cup. Then she practised blowing through the straw before placing it in the solution. I wanted to make sure she had the idea of blowing out and not sucking up the soapy water.

We all took turns blowing the bubbles as big as we could. 
Once we had a great big pile of bubbles we scooped them up into the air and held the bubbles in our hands.

As we were doing the experiment, we came across some helpful hints. 
HINT 1 - The larger the straw the better - to give the bubbles room to grow
HINT 2 - The more liquid you can hold in your container the better. 

The first time we did the experiment we used a small paper cup, but we quickly ran out of the solution and were unable to see the bubbles grow any larger. 

Next time we do the experiment, I would like to make multiple solutions, each different colours. 

Instead of placing the cup full of solution on towels to mop up the spillages I would use white paper to see what design the bubbles make on the paper.
