Bubble Trouble! Compare Bubbles!


  • Soap
  • Water
  • Cup
  • Bubble wand or straw
  • Strong bubble recipe (find online)
  • Adult science helper!

Directions: First, make a simple bubble solution by using the soap and water. Mix them together and make bubbles using the bubble wand or the straw. Observe the size, shape, and the strength of the bubbles. Then, with an adult’s help, look up some strong bubble recipes online and try them. Now, compare the size, shape, and strength to the simple bubbles. How were they similar? How were they different?
