Cloudy Bubbles

Dry ice isn’t actually ice at all! It’s the solid form of carbon dioxide. The dry ice is so much colder than the warm water, it turns immediately into a gas, which (along with the water) creates the fog you see inside the bubble. If you want your bubbles to stick, you can use a plate or tray with a little soap on top of it. Make sure you have parent help on this experiment and don’t touch the dry ice with your bare hands!
