Sunday: Dry ice and BUBBLES!

October 11, 2015 - It's SCIENCE!

Hello, Ezra here, and today we did something very special; experimenting with dry ice! For those who don’t know, dry ice is incredibly cold carbon dioxide, much colder than ordinary ice. But when it melts, it releases lots of carbon dioxide gas and expands into any space it can fit, creating lots of good explosion and smoke effects. So without further ado, lets see some of the experiments we did, because guess what, we recorded most of them in our first ever Youtube video featuring me, Hannah and our family and some friends on this website! Enjoy! (P.S. Don’t turn on subtitles on this video. It says that I say things that I don’t say in the video.)

You can try all of these things with dry ice, hot water, cheap plastic bottles, some bowls and soap. But remember; don’t try this at home!

[Wait. Is that sarcastic? Does that mean that I should try it at home?]

I didn’t say that.

[But is that what you meant?]

Ummm… I specifically said not to try this at home.

[Yeah, but is that what you-]

Wow, great explorations into dry ice, bubbles, liquids, gases, solids all that science type stuff. I am wondering what conclusions you came to, how might you use these ideas, aside from having a lot of great fun!


It was super fun playing with all that dry ice. Next time… MORE BOTTLES!

I also think it would be epic to get a really hot fire going in the wood burning stove in the yard then drop the dry ice directly onto the top. Sure, it might actually crack the metal, but it sure would look cool. 🙂


Oh Hannah, such a great aim you have…


    Gee thanks, I’m glad you enjoy my failure. And “Facepalm” is exactly what I was doing. We had to go and create a FAIL image just because I can’t throw.

Don’t be disappointed if you can’t find the original video on Youtube as it’s on a private account. You will probably only find videos like this here on
Exclusive videos! YEAH!
