“I’m forever blowing bubbles…” That song could easily describe me. I have a bottle of bubbles on my desk at work, and I have one at home. Blowing soap bubbles is fun, relaxing and sure to put a smile one everyone’s face. In honor of National Bubble Week, this article will provide ten tips for blowing incredible bubbles!
This year, National Bubble Week takes place from March 20th to March 26th. According to bubbleblowers.com, National Bubble Week was created in 2000 to celebrate the first day of spring. Bubble blowers can purchase bubble solution or create their own. If you purchase bubble solution, please make sure that it is labeled non-toxic especially if you’re blowing bubbles around small children or animals. Also, be careful when blowing bubbles inside, as the bubble solution may leave a residue on certain furniture pieces or fabrics. Below are ten tips for blowing great bubbles:
1. For commercial bubbles, dip the wand into the bottle twice so that the bubble solution gets into the wand real well.
2. Blow gently – blowing hard might break the bubble.
3. If you’re waving the wand to create a bubble, big sweeping motions create the best bubbles.
4. Buy a good quality bubble solution.
5. Blowing bubbles in sunlight makes them very beautiful as you can see colors in the bubbles.
6. A bubble gun is best for making multiple bubbles in a small amount of time.
7. Also if waving the wand to create bubbles, wave gently, too fast and the bubbles either won’t come out properly or will break immediately.
8. If you’re outside, hold the wand in the direction the wind is blowing to create effortless bubbles.
9. To make bubbles with different shapes, use unusual wands such as cookie cutters.
10. To make big bubbles, wire coat hangers dipped into a homemade bubble solution can be great fun.
