Blowing Bubbles in Minus 45 Degree Temps Frozen Bubble

What do you do when you have a thirteen year old at home with no school due to super arctic freezing weather? Play bubbles in the front lawn veggie garden of course (yep, this is what Blowing Bubbles in Minus 45 Degree Tempsmy garden looks like in the winter).

Throw on the coats and stir up some bubble mix to see what happens when you blow bubbles in 45 degrees below zero weather.

Bubble Recipe

  • 1/4 cup natural dish detergent
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon glycerin

Mix all ingredients together in a resealable container like a ball jar. That’s it.

My daughter and I were more than fascinated with the results, particularly the way the bubble disintegrated into a stripped down bubble at the very end. Watching the bubble freeze and crack open like an egg was amazing too. If you are going to have weather with windchill that supersedes -45 degrees, you might as well have a little fun, right? Stay warm out there peeps – happy bubble blowing!

    I’m thinking that temp must be factoring in the wind chill factor…from what I read, the record low in Chicago was -12 degrees back in 1942. I do love the idea of blowing bubbles and watching them freeze, though. How fun! :)
