This post has been written on behalf of Netflix as part of the Netflix Stream Team who introduced our family to some fun science themed kids shows on Netflix!
E, who is now a preschooler, is starting to get interested in how things work and how different materials can be combined to make a new component. For example, we’ve made play dough out of flour and other materials and recently made “space mud” using Borax and glue. This month, we decided to create our own bubble solution and bubble wands using materials that can be commonly found at home! Creating these little experiments and watching science themed kids shows on Netflix are a fun way to introduce chemistry and other science concepts to kids at a early age.
Make your own bubble solution and bubble wands!
- 2 Tbsp. Dish soap (we used original Dawn)
- 1/2 cup of Water
- 1/2 Tsp. Sugar
- Small bottle (old vitamin bottles work well)
- Pipe cleaners
- Bubbles: Mix dish soap, water and sugar in the small bottle.
- Bubble wands: Take pipe cleaner and bend into a desired shape.
