Make Frozen Bubbles Using Cold Weather

Make your bubbles last longer by turning them into ice.

What You’ll Need:

  • Soap powder
  • Sugar
  • Hot water
  • Bowl
  • Spoon for mixing
  • Bubble wand (you can typically buy these in toy shops or even newsagents in a children’s bubble kit).


  1. This is an activity for a cold, cold (below freezing) day when there is no wind in the air. So make sure to wrap up warm.
  2. Start by making a strong bubble solution. Mix 1/2 cup soap powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and 3 cups hot water. (This mixture will help the bubbles last longer.)
  3. Take the bubble solution and a bubble wand outside. Blow a bubble, and catch it on the wand very carefully to prevent it from bursting.
  4. Let the bubble sit resting on the wand in the cold air. In the below-freezing chill, the bubble will soon freeze into a fragile crystal ball.
