Fun That Pops
One of my favorite pastimes for a lazy afternoon is blowing bubbles. Even though you can buy fancy bubble-blowing gadgets at the toy store, all you really need to make big bubbles is some paper, tape and scissors to create a bubble-blowing cone. Bubbles from this kind of cone can get really big and last longer than bubbles from a plastic bubble wand. You can learn how to make your own blowing cone and homemade bubble solution at www.zurqui.com/crinfocus/bubble/bubble.html. This site also shows you how to do fun stuff with your bubbles, such as measuring them or even freezing them.
Do you know why bubbles are a sphere and not another shape such as a cube or a tetrahedron? Or how about why bubbles are multicolored? The answers to these scientific questions can be found at Exploratorium's Bubbles, www.exploratorium.edu/ronh/bubbles. You’ll also find out why you can't blow bubbles with plain water, and see what happens when lots of bubbles collide. Have fun!
