This is the coolest, quietest, most transfixing winter thing I've seen in a long time...and it turns out, super easy to do! According to ABC News, this happened in Minnesota.

How Do You Do This Thing?

It's literally three steps.

  1. Go outside.
  2. Dip cookie cutter in bubble stuff
  3. Hold it up so you can watch it freeze.

I've done this by blowing bubbles in the super sub-zero temps, and they do kind of the same thing with neat patterns but super-fast, then they collapse into themselves. It's really pretty, but this is so much cooler.

If you don't have bubble stuff handy, here's how to make it.

  • To six cups of water add 1 cup of dish soap and stir SLOWLY until it's mixed nicely. You want to avoid making bubbles and lather while you stir.
  • Add a 1/4 cup corn syrup and stir some more.
  • That's it, you're ready to go. However, if you make it the night before and cover it, you'll get much better bubble action.
  • NOTE: One recipe reminds that if you used an ULTRA dish soap, double the corn syrup.

It's we need rules for winter?
