Frozen Bubbles -23deg. Celcius

It was -23 degrees. Very warmly dressed and with the sun helping, we went out in the cold to blow bubbles. Just for that, it felt good! Wanting to defy the cold or just for the pleasure of going to play outside.

I wanted to blow frozen bubbles. I found a peaceful, quiet and almost magical moment!

Strangely fragile. Perfectly perfect. Uniquely unique.

To make bubbles…


  • 200 ml lukewarm water
  • 2.5 tbsp corn syrup
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2.5 tbsp dish soap

Step by Step:

  • Add corn syrup and sugar to lukewarm water.
  • Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  • Add the soap and stir gently… Avoid making foam (I don’t know why…)
  • Pour into a container with lid and place in the freezer for 30 min

Air Bottle:

  • Use an empty water bottle
  • Pierce the cap and insert a straw
  • Use Reusable Adhesive Putty, Hot glue or Tape to attach and seal the straw

To blow bubbles:

  • Dip the straw in the bubble liquid (do not suck in the liquid)
  • Gently press the bottle and make bubbles (the bottle is only for blowing air)
  • The outside temperature should be between -15 and -25 deg Celcius
  • The wind will cause the bubbles to explode (choose a place sheltered from the wind)

Have lots of fun !
