What you need


A straw






Get a straw and carefully cut the end into four

Push the ends out so they look like a flower with four petals

Dip the flower in soapy water and gently blow through the straw.

Results & explanation


The petals help the bubble to become big by holding the soapy water in the petals so the bubble doesn't stretch too thin and burst.
