Despite what the thermometer says for many of us, spring is just around the corner. And with spring comes flowers, warmer weather, children playing outside and National Bubble Week (March 8th – 14th).
National Bubble Week originated in 2000 as a way to celebrate spring. Because bubbles are such an iconic, fun outside toy, it’s only natural to use these floating spheres to usher in the season synonymous with outdoor play, laughter and sunshine.
Here are some ways everyone can celebrate!
First, get some bubbles!

Take the bubble test!
Did you know:
- A Bubble Gets Its Color From Iridescence: As waves of light pass through the bubble, it gets distorted by reflecting off different layers of soap film.
- You Can Freeze Bubbles: A bubble’s shell is composed of a layer of water molecules surrounded by two thin layers of soap. Technically, a bubble will freeze below 32 degrees Fahrenheit like all water. The only problem is that bubbles tend to burst after a few seconds, so in order to see a bubble freeze, the temperature needs to fall to a temperature that will freeze water molecules more quickly.
- Why Do Bubbles Burst?: Anything that fractures the tenuous layer of water molecules can cause a bubble to burst. For example, a gust of wind or an object (like your finger) will easily cause a bubble to burst. Also, a bubble will burst if enough of the water molecules evaporate.
- Many Bubbles Makes A Foam: When many bubbles are joined together, it becomes a foam. From cappuccinos to the foam on the top of your beer, bubbles are all around us.
Gazillion Bubbles are loved the world over by people of all ages. There’s even a Gazillion Bubble Show in New York City, which I know that my kids would LOVE to go to! Also an exhibit at the So Cal Children’s Museum focused on them. For kids, bubbles are pure fun for spring and summer outdoor frolic. For adults, (where you’ll find them at events such as proms, weddings and more,) they symbolize peace, harmony and beauty.
