Bubble Ice Crystals

The other day the kids and I were outside playing in the snow and one of them came to me with their bubble wand.  Not thinking that winter and bubbles actually went together, I hesitated, but then thought the contrast might be neat.  After approximately two minutes of enjoying bubbles on snow, the show froze up.  Literally.  Slush started forming in the container and as I pulled the wand out, ice crystals began to form in the bubble solution and rapidly took over the entire surface.  Bubble blowing was no longer a possibility.  But, it made for a lovely science lesson.
