After seeing it all over the internet (by which I mean Facebook), I got pulled into the freezing bubble phenomenon. Unfortunately, I had neither bubble solution nor bubble wand. I resolved to rectify the situation, as we were in Traverse City/near bubble-supply location, but then forgot. So I did what any person who desperately wants to make bubbles does and improvised. I made a wand out of some Amazon packaging leftovers (you never know what those things can be good for!) and found bubble solution in the form of the diluted Dawn we keep beside the kitchen sinks.
After many, many bubbles, a few finally stuck without popping. Apparently adding corn syrup makes the bubbles a little thicker, but I wasn’t going to ruin my soap since it was working okay.
I was happy with that, despite the low contrast of the cloudy morning. But then the sun came out…and so I traipsed back out. My fingers haven’t been that cold in a long time – much colder than the other day. Making the bubbles isn’t so bad, but making the pictures is brutal! I’m not sure how cold it needs to be for bubbles to freeze, but if you get a cold, windless day, give it a go! (I think the low wind is probably more important than the extreme cold, but it was in the single digits out there.) Your inner child you will thank you 🙂
