Kate's Corner: CD bubbles

By  | 

BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. (WDTV) - Do you have any old CDs or DVDs that you don't wan anymore? Well, why not make fun and unique bubbles out of them?

Here's what you'll need:
- A CD or DVD
- Scissors
- A lighter
-Parental supervision

So the first step is to cut the CD in half. Then you will be able to separate the bottom and the top of the CD. Then we are going to heat an area underneath the CD slowly until we get a raised dent. Blow on the heated portion and you'll get a bubble. You can detach it or leave it on the CD.

So what's happening?

Well the bottom of your CD or DVD player is made from a polycarbonate plastic. Once this is heated up, it is more flexible and by simply blowing on you, you stretch it out into a long bubble.
