This Week Is National Bubble Week
It’s that time of year again! National Bubble Week. From Monday, March 7th through Sunday, March 13th. Even though the weather is a bit touchy lately and cannot make up it’s mind whether it’s time for short sleeves, or snow shoes – that’s no excuse to stay inside. So get out there and blow some bubbles.
One of the ways that I make sure we are always prepared to embrace those sunshine filled days is creating a Outside Fun Command Center by our front door!
Inside we have a fun velcro catch game that I loved as a kid. I have such fond memories of playing with my Nan it was one of her favorite games for outside. There’s also some sidewalk chalk for us to unleash our inner artists. Then the best part is our Gazillion Bubbles hand-held bubble blasters!
Gazillion Bubbles Are The Best
One of our favorite brands is Funrise Toys and Gazillion Bubbles. They are the best quality bubbles we’ve tested. They have the most popular bubble machine, and now they’ve made that fun a bit more portable with hand-held bubble blasters.

Test Your Bubble Knowledge
How does a Bubble Gets Its Color? As waves of light pass through the bubble, it gets distorted by reflecting off different layers of soap film called iridescence. (Gazillion Bubbles is also known to have the most colorful and beautiful bubbles available.)
Can You Freeze a Bubble? A bubble’s shell is composed of a layer of water molecules surrounded by two thin layers of soap. Technically, a bubble will freeze below 32 degrees Fahrenheit like all water. The only problem is that bubbles tend to burst after a few seconds, so in order to truly see a bubble freeze, the temperature needs to fall to about 23 degrees for bubble staying power.
Why Do Bubbles Burst? Anything that fractures the tenuous layer of water molecules can cause a bubble to burst. For example, a gust of wind or an object (like your finger) will easily cause a bubble to burst. Bubbles also burst by simply drying out. Moisture within a bubble causes the molecules to draw closer together enabling the bubble to stay formed for a longer period of time. This is why bubbles tend to work best in high humidity environments.
