My little scientists are at it again….longer hair, talking more, taller and even more curious and inquisitive.
Last summer, I introduced the girls to dry ice experiments and sublimation.
We received a frozen goods package, so I had to do some more dry ice bubbles with them. And, just like last year, they loved it.
Of course they had forgotten how it went at first. And, I decided to do it in the bathroom sink (less clean up…lazy mommy, right)? But, they did remember my warnings about touching the dry ice. When I got the dry ice out of the styrofoam box, they crammed in the corner and said “watch out, watch out, you don’t want the ice to burn you!”
We put some hot water in the sink, then added some dish soap, and then I tossed the dry ice in.
Instant bubbles. Remember, they are filled with carbon dioxide, so when you touch the bubbles, they let out a little cloud of “smoke.”
They started smacking at the bubbles and got a bit of “smoke” in their faces. But, they were still quite cautious.
But, they started to go all in…notice they both have their tongues out:)
And, then they totally went for it. Picking up the bubbles. Scooping them. Blowing on them. Popping them in their hands. I think it’s safe to say they enjoyed it just as much this year as they did last year!
