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. 01 of 11 Make Bubble Solution Eugenio Marongiu/Cultura/Getty Images Before we get too far along, you might want to make up some bubble solution. Yes, you can buy bubble solution. It is easy to make it yourself, too. 02 of 11 Bubble Rainbow Make a bubble rainbow with a water bottle, old sock, dishwashing liquid and food coloring. Anne Helmenstine Make a rainbow of bubbles using a sock, dishwashing liquid, and food coloring. This simple project is fun, messy, and great way to explore bubbles and color. 03 of 11 Bubble Prints Bubble Print. Anne Helmenstine This is a project in which you capture the impression of bubbles on paper. It is fun, plus a great way to study the shapes bubbles make. 04 of 11 Microwave Ivory Soap This soap sculpture actually resulted from a small piece of Ivory soap. My microwave literally filled when I nuked an entire bar. Anne Helmenstine This project is a super-easy way to produce a mound of bubbles in your microwave. It doesn't harm your microwave or the soap. 05 of 11 Dry Ice Crystal Ball If you coat a container of water and dry ice with bubble solution you will get a bubble that sort of resembles a crystal ball. Anne Helmenstine This project uses dry ice and bubble solution to make a giant bubble that resembles a swirling cloudy crystal ball. 06 of 11 Burning Bubbles If you blow a flammable gas into soapy water, you can ignite the bubbles, apparently setting them on fire. Anne Helmenstine This project requires adult supervision! You blow flammable bubbles and set them on fire. 07 of 11 Colored Bubbles Andreas Dalmann/EyeEm/Getty Images These colored bubbles are based on disappearing ink so the pink or blue bubble color vanishes after the bubbles pop, leaving no stains. 08 of 11 Glowing Bubbles Glowing Bubble. Anne Helmenstine It is easy to make bubbles that will glow when exposed to a black light. This fun bubble project is great for parties. 09 of 11 Mentos and Soda Bubble Fountain Michael Murphy/Wikimedia Commons/CC BY SA 3.0 You can use other candies for this project besides Mentos. They need to be about the same size as the opening to your bottle and should stack neatly. Diet soda is usually recommended for this project because it doesn't produce a sticky mess, but you can use normal soda just fine. 10 of 11 Frozen Bubbles Frost patterns form as bubbles freeze. 10kPhotography/Getty Images You can 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. 11 of 11 Antibubbles The Alpha Wolf/Wikimedia Commons/CC 3.0 Antibubbles are droplets of liquid that are surrounded by a thin film of gas. There are several places you can observe antibubbles, plus you can make them yourself.
