What is it with bubbles? We all have a fascination with them and love playing with them! Here is a bubble challenge that looks fun (and challenging). Let’s add the images to our Instagram Challenge already happening #365homeschool. Besides just #HipHomeschoolMoms hashtag, lets add #bubblechallenge to the list. Remember with Instagram, the more hashtags, the better!!
In typical homeschool fashion, let’s make this a homeschool science experiment and competition… complete with tallying the results and graphing what works best, etc. We can make this into an entire bubble science unit study!! And this whole experiment might be a little easier if you use the unpoppable bubble recipe to make the bubble solution!!
If you are planning to graph the results, here is free graph paper you can print.
If you are going to actually take us up on the challenge, please be sure to post results (either video or pictures) in our facebook group and hashtag it!! We look forward to seeing what y’all do!
This was a really fun bubble challenge. If y’all end up doing it, please use the hashtags #365homeschool and #bubblechallenge so we can see you in action!!
