Let’s Make a Fog Bubble From Dry Ice

To make a fog bubble you will need:
 
  • a large bowl with a lip around the top
  • a strip of cloth
  • bubble solution (be sure to add a little corn syrup or glycerin to your solution for strong bubbles that will get really big).
  • dry ice (can be purchased in grocery stores)

Safety First: Adults should handle the dry ice with gloves.  Do not let the children touch the dry ice.  It can cause skin reactions.

Directions:
1. Place the dry ice in the bowl and add a little water.
2. Place the strip of cloth in the bubble solution. Get a generous amount of solution on the cloth.
3. Run the cloth around the lip of the bowl and then drag it across the bowl to form a bubble.
4. Now watch what happens!
