This is a really fun and super simple science experiment to try with your kids!  It’s especially good to keep in mind for a rainy day or any day you’re stuck in the house and need something fun to do!  Our whole family really enjoyed it.

A Possible Modification for LittlesOur newly three year old was able to do the experiment, but often would blow too hard and pop her bubbles earlier than she intended, which caused her some frustration.  Soon my four year old began blowing bubbles and when he was satisfied with how big they were, he’d let his little sister pop them.  It was teamwork at it’s finest!! 🙂  If your child is having trouble doing the experiment independently, you may be able to hold the straw for them to make sure it’s positioned properly, or you or an older child can blow bubbles while your little ones watch (and POP!) them! 🙂

I would like to say a big “THANK YOU!” to Marbles Kids Museum in downtown Raleigh, NC for allowing us to share the fun we had using one of their Action Cards which introduced us to this experiment.  If you live in the Triangle area of NC, or visit the area, I highly recommend a visit to Marbles!!  Your kids will thank you!  Be sure to pick up an Action Card as you leave for more fun at home! 🙂

    Thanks! I found this on Pinterest and never knew Marbles had action cards. I have to make sure I pick one up – and I now know about your blog. I love all of your ideas.
