Did you know that you can make square bubbles? We tried it this week and it was so much fun! My kids played with them for a long time. It is really easy. You should give it a try!
How to Make Square Bubbles:
It is simple to make. You just need:
6 Pipe Cleaners– cut in half
6 Straws- cut in half
A Big Pot or Bowl
Warm Soapy Water
To start, twist three of the pipe cleaner halves together making it into a pyramid type shape. Repeat that step four times.
Next, put a straw piece onto each one of the pipe cleaners.
Then attach each 3-piece section to another section and it will form into a cube.
Fill a big pot with warm soapy water- lots of soap!
Dip your bubble maker into the water and slowly pull out to see the square bubbles form.
Repeat again, and again, and again….
Why and how does it work?
You will see there is a center cube bubble. The ones along the side push int the center one making a square shape. If you pop the sides the center one will be round. The sphere is the easiest and most stable shape that bubbles can form but it can turn into other shapes when it is surrounded by other bubbles.
Try other shapes to see if they work, too!!!
