Have you ever tried to create a frozen bubble? We’ve put a twist on this winter activity and made the bubbles colored. It’s the perfect snow day activity!
Colored Frozen Bubble
Yeah, we Finally got a snow day!! So after the chili was started and the homemade hot cocoa was simmering on the stove, it was time to go out and play in the snow. However, this wasn’t heavy snow. So there were no snowballs, forts, or snowmen to be made. It was light and fluffy so we needed something else to do. We need a fun snow day activity! So we decided to make a colored frozen bubble.

Prepping your snow day activity
We have a few tips to help you when playing around with these bubbles. First, pour out some of your bubbles and take out the bubble wands.
This helps keep the fingers from having to go into the bubbles. You are bound to get some colored fingertips, but this can minimize the problem a bit. Add in food coloring of your choice.
J wanted red and blue. We used a good squeeze of each. Then head outside! Bring more coloring out with you just in case.
Make sure it’s a cold day. It was under 20 when we did this, the sun was out and we were bundled so it didn’t feel too bad. I think it would have worked better if it was even cooler. You also want a day with little to no wind. Now Start blowing bubbles.
When they touch the snow they leave so much color.
Now, wait and watch…
The ones that have stuck around long enough will start to frost over…
It is very pretty.
The frozen bubble will still blow away, getting pictures was tricky. This was such a fun snow day activity. I can’t wait to do it again!! The leftover snow is pretty too.
Painting in the Snow:
So this inspired us to use the leftovers for snow paint!
