What to do with sub-zero temperatures in Minnesota

It was well below zero and school was closed due to dangerous weather. We heard about freezing bubbles, so we went outside to try it. We used a windbreaker to keep the bubbles from flying away before they could freeze.

My son’s reaction to seeing the first bubble freeze was priceless.

My kids were also amazed at the appearance of a bubble after it “bursts.”

Broken, frozen bubble

Here my son is exhaling on the bubble to watch it melt. Melting is more fun to watch than the breaking.

Frozen bubble on the ground didn’t break.

A damp shirt will freeze in under 5 minutes in subzero temperatures. Makes for some fun advertising!
