Fun with bubbles isn't just for long, lazy summer days. Frosty cold winter weather with temperatures dipping below 20 degrees F and 3 simple ingredients are what we used to make beautiful frozen bubbles. Our thermometer dipped to -12 degrees F when I took all of these photos.
Important Camera Note: Going from a warm building to the cold outdoors is hard on a camera (I used a point & click camera for photos in this instructable). To make it easier on your camera and for better photos, wait a few minutes before taking those first shots to give the camera time to acclimate to the drastic change in temperature. You can gather the other things you'll need to start the bubble happiness while you wait.
Only 3 ingredients are needed to make the frozen bubble solution. Summer-fun 'regular' bubble solution didn't work for me - these bubbles broke immediately or as soon as they landed on a surface.
Stir together thoroughly:
Pour about half of this mixed solution into a small pan. Since I didn't have a regular bubble wand, I improvised by making one out of a wire egg-holder used to dye Easter eggs and it worked well.
Helpful Hint: In addition to giving the camera time to acclimate to the temperature drop, I had better results if I also set the bubble solution outside for a few minutes before starting to make bubbles. Not to worry - it won't freeze.
