Five Things to Do When Bored in Cold Weather

YouTube
Temperatures in southeast Wyoming have slipped below zero for many nights in a row now as winter moves in. When it gets cold outside, it’s pretty easy to become a hermit in an attempt to stay warm. Once you are warm, the challenge is to stay entertained. To help you escape complete and utter boredom while we wait out the latest freeze, here are some entertaining experiments you can try that are just right for the conditions outside.


1

Evaporate Hot Water

 
 

This is about as simple as an experiment can get. You just have to make sure it is very, very cold and you use very, very hot water. Simply boil some water, place it in a mug, head outside when the temperature is at -10 or lower, throw the water up into the air and watch what happens!

 
2

Frozen Bubbles

 
 

Anytime the temperature drops below zero, you’ll want to make sure you have some bubble solution ready. Why? Because you can freeze the bubbles! Warm up the solution in the microwave before heading outside and blowing some bubbles. Catch the bubbles on the wand and watch them freeze, then you can throw them, roll them or just crack them.

Pop a Pop

 
 

This one is simple enough, you just want to plan this experiment so you explode you can or bottle of soda in the middle of the night, waking up all of your neighbors. The best thing to do is leave the soda outside for an hour. Once it’s almost completely frozen, throw the soda, or drop it off a ledge to make your pop go pop!

Banana Hammer

 
 

Bananas are about to get a whole lot cooler. Place a ripe banana in the freezing cold outdoors and let it sit for about an hour. Then find something you wish to hammer, perhaps a nail into a piece of wood, and hammer away with your banana. Note that it will still hurt if you accidentally hit your finger instead of the nail.

Shrink and Re-Grow a Balloon

 
 

Find a balloon, and yes for many that will be the most difficult step, blow up the balloon and tie it up outside. The balloon will deflate, the colder it is the faster this will happen. Once you are satisfied with the lifelessness of your balloon, bring it inside and watch it come back to life.
