– DRY ICE BIG BUBBLE: large bowl, dish soap/water mixture, water, shoe lace or strip of cloth

– EXTINGUISHING CANDLE: Tea light, match, Tupperware or small bowl

– DRY ICE “INSTRUMENT”: Cups/containers of different sizes/shapes, water, soap


Get ready to have fun with these simple yet exciting experiments! Here are the steps to follow:


1. Fill a large bowl with water and drop a little dry ice in it.

2. Dip a shoe lace or strip of cloth in a soapy solution and drag it across the bowl, sealing the bowl with soapy water. You should see a big bubble form with vapor from the dry ice.
