Giant bubbles

Aren't these fantastic!

Just imagine the fun your class could have and the questions that would be generated.

Can we make a stronger mixture?
Does it still work on a windy day?
Can you make other bubbles inside the big one?
Why does humidity make a difference?

The friend who sent the photos said..

"It was only 70% humidity, higher humidity gives better bubbles - we had trouble closing off the bubbles that day, without them popping."

Here is a link to the bubble book, and 'bubble thing', that we have - it's an ad for it on Amazon, and you can look at some of the inside pages. Might be useful. . . .
If anyone else has ideas or photos of things they have tried please send us an email and I'll put them up (just make sure you have permission for children's photos). We're always looking for new material so would love to hear from you.

Hi , I have a giant bubble mixture recipe but I have not had much luck with it. I also have the wands. I wondered if it had something to do with the brand of detergent I have tried. What brand do you use.
