How to make a bubble inside a bubble inside a bubble.
What you need:
- plastic cup
- warm water
- granulated sugar
- dish soap
Fill the cup with warm water (about 8 0z.). Add one tablespoon of granulated sugar, add two tablespoons of dish soap and stir the mixture. Warm water will easily dissolve the sugar as you stir the solution. Cut the bulb end of the pipette (about half an inch) to make it your bubble wand.
On a table, use your fingers to spread some of the solution and blow the bubbles on this surface. Dip the end of the pipette and blow a big bubble. Dip the bubble wand again and slowly push it inside the bubble and make a medium-sized bubble. Do this again and blow a smaller bubble. You can let the children create their own bubble inside a bubble inside a bubble.
The secret ingredient to making the bubble wall stronger is the sugar.
