Wondering what to do with dry ice? Make learning fun by creating dry ice science experiments. This article includes two different ways to introduce children to the awesome science behind this unique substance! Ready to add excitement to your kid’s learning session?
Experiment with Dry Ice for a Fun Learning Session
Science is all about investigating and learning, so when children learn with dry ice, they have the opportunity to explore! Remember, don’t touch dry ice with your hands because it’s 109.3 degrees Fahrenheit and will burn your skin on contact. So, make sure you utilize tongs or heavy-duty gloves.
Dry Ice Bubbles Experiment
One of your dry ice science experiments is to make a bubble solution. First, pour some water into a cup and then add some bubble concentrate or dish soap. Mix these two with a spoon or craft stick. Next, press your funnel into the end of your plastic tubing. Then, stick the end of the tubing in your soap solution and blow into the funnel to form a bubble. Before you cut the top of the bottle, to ensure a straightforward process of dropping the dry ice in the bottle, make sure the funnel can cover the bottle’s opening. Once the bottle is cut, fill it halfway with warm water.
In addition, utilize your gloved hand to place a few parts of dry ice into the bottle. The water will begin to bubble, and fog will form. Are you ready to blow bubbles? Dip the end of the tubing into the soap solution and put the other end with the funnel on top of the bottle. A foggy bubble should develop on the soapy end of the tube.
Bubbly Dry Ice Ice Cream
Another one of the quick dry ice science experiments to try is this ice cream recipe. First, you must crush the icy substance either with a hammer or mallet. Combine all the other ingredients in a significant mixing bowl. Instead of vanilla ice cream, you can add one cup of chocolate syrup for chocolate ice cream. Then, shake the dry ice into the ice cream gradually. Continue adding dry ice until you’ve reached your desired consistency. The ice cream can be very cold, so avoid frostbite when consuming it.
