The science of bouncing glycerin bubbles is fun. We all know bubbles normally pop when they are
touched or come into contact with something. The walls of bubbles are tiny, a few millions of an
inch thick at best. Normal bubbles pop when they come into contact with dirt or oil (common on
hands, clothes and surfaces).
Glycerin gives our bouncing bubbles their added strength. It's
important the cotton gloves are clean when bouncing bubbles. If they have dirt or oil particles on
them the bubbles will pop.

Materials:
- Dawn Dish Soap
- Glycerin (Ebay or Pharmacy) - Use Karo Syrup if you can't find Glycerin.
- Distilled Water
- Cotton Gloves
- Bubble Blowing Tool (get one from a regular bubble bottle at the local market)

Process To Make Bouncing Bubbles:

1) Pour 1 cup of distilled water into a bowl.

2) Add 2 tablespoons of the Dawn soap.

3) Add 1 tablespoon of Glycerin.

4) Mix

5) Put on your cotton gloves.

6) Dip in and blow some bubbles. The bigger the better. Try one the size of an orange.

7) Gently catch and push up on the bubbles as they fall. They should bounce off your glove and
back into the air.

8) You can try bouncing them off other materials like your shirt or pants as well. Experiment with
what materials make the bubbles bounce the best. Now go make a big batch of bouncing bubbles
with your friends.
