Bubbles

Learn how to make your own bubble solution and get ideas for science projects involving bubbles.

Fun Bubble Projects
It's fun to play with bubbles! You can do much more with bubbles than simply blow a few here and there. Here's a list of fun science projects and experiments involving bubbles.

Bubble Science
Learn about the science behind bubbles. Find out what bubbles are and how they behave.

Bubble Solution Recipe
Save some pennies and make this bubble mix yourself! Most drugstores and pharmacies carry glycerine.

Bubbles That Don't Pop
If you're tired of bubbles that pop as soon as you blow them, try this recipe for unbreakable bubbles!

Bubble Rainbow
Use household materials to make a bubble rainbow! This is a safe, easy and fun project that explores how bubbles and color work.

Baking Soda & Vinegar Foam Fight
This is a twist on the classic baking soda volcano, where you use the ingredients to make squirt-able fountains of foam.

Baking Soda & Vinegar Volcano
Okay, it's the kitchen equivalent of a volcano, not a real one. The 'eruption' is cool all the same! It's also more or less non-toxic, which adds to its appeal.

Bubble Life & Temperature
This science fair project examines whether bubbles last the same length of time in hot temperatures as they do in cool temperatures.

Bubble Prints
Bubble prints are like fingerprints, except made with bubbles. You can make bubble prints and learn about how bubbles are shaped and how pigments combine to make different colors.

Carbonated Fizzy Fruit
Use dry ice to carbonate fruit. The fruit will be filled with tingly carbon dioxide bubbles, like a soda. The fizzy fruit is great to eat on its own or it can be used in recipes.

Colored Soap Bubbles
Make brightly colored pink and blue soap bubbles that won't stain clothing or surfaces.

Dry Ice Crystal Ball
The giant bubble you can make using dry ice and bubble solution sort of resembles a crystal ball. This is an easy and spectacular science project.

Dry Ice Bubbles
You can use sublimating dry ice to produce carbon dioxide gas to fill bubbles. A small piece of dry ice will produce cloudy bubbles for a long time. Here's what you do.

Fizzy Bath Bomb
Use your chemistry to make a fizzy, scented bath bomb. Make them for yourself or give them as gifts!

Fizzy Potion Recipe
Make a non-toxic fizzy Mad Scientist potion using ingredients from your kitchen. The potion looks evil, but it is safe enough to drink.

Frozen Bubbles
Use dry ice to freeze bubbles solid so that you can pick them up and examine them closely. You can use this project to demonstrate several scientific principles, such as density, interference, semipermeability, and diffusion.

Glow in the Dark Mentos & Tonic Water Fountain
It's easy to make a mentos and soda eruption glow. All you need to do is use tonic water or diet tonic water instead of the usual diet soda and shine a black light on the fountain.

Glowing Bubbles
Bubbles are already awesome, but glowing bubbles are even better. It is easy and safe to make bubbles glow, plus it doesn't require any hard-to-find materials. Here is what you do.

Ivory Soap Microwave Trick
Microwave a bar of Ivory soap and watch it expand to over six times its original size. The foam trick is good clean fun, plus it can be used to demonstrate Charles' Law, physical change, and foam formation.

Kid-Friendly Elephant Toothpaste Demo
The elephant toothpaste demo produces a growing column of foam that looks like what you would get if an elephant squashed a giant tube of toothpaste. Here's a kid-friendly version of this classic chemistry demonstration.

Lemon Fizz Science Project
The lemon fizz project is a fun bubbly science project using kitchen ingredients that’s ideal for kids to try.

Mentos & Diet Soda Chemical Volcano
Candies and diet soda together can make a chemical 'volcano' with an eruption several feet high. If the normal baking soda volcano is too tame for you, give this project a try.

Yeast & Hydrogen Peroxide Volcano
Here's how to make a safe and easy chemical volcano using two common inexpensive household ingredients.

Bubble Photos
This is a collection of pictures of bubbles, including soap bubbles, dry ice bubbles, and bubble prints.

Antibubbles
Learn what antibubbles are and how to observe antibubbles and make them yourself.

How to Foam at the Mouth
Do you want to foam at the mouth, without having rabies or being poisoned? You can perform a safe chemical reaction that makes you foam at the mouth.

How To Make Unpoppable Bubbles
Learn how to make bubbles strong enough to pick up and examine.

How To Blow an Unpoppable CD Bubble
Learn how to make an unpoppable plastic bubble from a CD.

Frozen Bubbles - Blow Bubbles in Winter
If it's really cold outside, go outdoors and blow bubbles that freeze into frost patterns.
