Alea has been on a science kick for the last month or so. Everything we do and everything she sees, she immediately ties it back to science. For example, when we went to the fireworks on the 4th of July, she explained to Cory and I that “fireworks are simply just a chemical reaction!” Her recent science obsession stems mainly from Cory introducing her to the wondrous Bill Nye the Science Guy and I couldn’t be more proud. I mean, who didn’t squeal with delight when they saw the TV rolled out in their classroom and squeal even more when Bill Nye appeared on the screen? It brings back so many fond memories!
Along with this science phase, naturally Alea has been wanting to do “science experiments” and so I’ve been trying to think of simple ones that we can do together, that she can also understand. That is where these homemade bubbles were born! Something simple, that also encompasses Alea’s love of science and something we can use outdoors for weeks and weeks to come!
1. 1 cup of Green Works Dish Soap
2. 2 cups of Water
1. Combine the Green Works Dish Soap and water in a small container.
2. Add a bubble wand + start blowing bubbles!
Who would’ve thought that making bubbles was so fun and so easy? Store bought bubbles no more!
Speaking of science, did you know that men still outnumber women in science fields? Did you know girls have a 1 in 1000 chance of continuing in the sciences? It’s hard to believe in this day and age, but it’s so true. Green Works has partnered with STEM to help facilitate girls’ interest in the science fields! Just check out the video below:
After watching this video with me, Alea promptly said, “When I grow up, I’m going to be a scientist! And a singer on The Voice of course!” (Insert laughter emoji here!) She cracks me up, but I’m so happy that she’s already interested in such an amazing field!
Have you made your own bubbles before?
How do you teach your kids about science?
