Frozen bubbles winter challenge

Learn about states of matter while having fun with bubbles

It’s fun to blow bubbles but they usually don’t last very long and are very easy to pop. In this Christmas STEM activity, students will create a frozen bubble using golden syrup and washing up liquid. This activity will get students thinking about the different states of matter, evaporation, molecules and more!

Download the free activity sheet below. If you’re up for an extra activity, try our wordsearch that uses words from the experiment.  

And please do share your learning highlights and final creations with us on social media @IETeducation #SantaLovesSTEM or send them via email to to be featured in our online gallery.
