Making a bubble snake

Child blowing bubble mix through chux cloth to make a snake

Bubbles are a serious business. Different recipes for bubble mix can be a closely guarded secret.  And bubbles contain so many STEM opportunities that you probably don’t even realise.  This little gem is a maths activity, creating bubble mix is also a good introduction to chemistry.  And the rainbow shine on the bubble is a great way to start an optics discussion about rainbows and, of course, bubbles are great fun!
