“…a simple and totally awesome outdoor activity…Fill your yard, the beach, a park, a campground, or anywhere outdoors with giant, almost unpoppable, BUBBLES!!” Chelsea Rector
Balboa Island Native and current UCR Masters Student, Chelsea Rector, exclaims with a smile that, “Bubbles are incredibly colorful! They are able to illuminate any backdrop with an unpredictable canvas of ever changing hues based on the angle of the rays of light touching down upon the bubble as it emerges. Seemingly the bubble comes alive while creating its very own exclusive shape to not be repeated in exact formation really ever again. Fascinating!!”
Chelsea, while a Fellow at the Culver Center of the Arts, completed a bubble study as a part of her Fellowship at the Center. She also has a Masters Degree (MFA) in Visual Arts from UCR. For your best bubble results, she recommends the Beeboo Big Bubbles Kit and the Pro Bubble Juice both found on Amazon at a reasonable price. The Pro Bubble Juice works well with standard size bubble wands also. Chelsea strongly urges our readers to buy the Pro Bubble Juice by the “…gallon, for maximum fun!”
Bubbles have been entertaining people of all ages for at least 400 years. Bubbles can reach a height of 4 meters while there is no limit on the length that they are able to extend to. Children as young as 2 years of age through their college experience are able to benefit intellectually on a conceptual basis from the formations of bubbles by simply creating and/or watching them evolve from a bucket of soapy water. Be sure to maintain a higher bubble mix than water while making your very own bubble art. Ultimately, water will succumb to gravity affecting the ability of the bubble to maintain its vitality. The bubble mix will slow this process down due to its glycerol content.
OC’s Hair Police thanks Chelsea for her comments while hoping that her direction will allow you and your family the time this summer to enjoy simple pleasures such as a little BUBBLE MANIA!Bubble History
