How to Make Bubble Rings Underwater

Bubble Rings

Bubble rings are one of the most fun and satisfying things you can make underwater! With a little practice, you can learn how to make perfect rings every time. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making bubble rings underwater.

  1. Fill a large container with water. You’ll need enough water to submerged your entire body.
  2. Take a deep breath and dive down into the water. Make sure you’re completely submerged before you start making the bubble ring.
  3. Expel all the air from your lungs in one smooth exhale. As you exhale, curl your tongue back and form a small ring with your lips.
  4. Keep your tongue and lips in the same position as you begin to swim upwards, forming the bubble ring as you go. The slower you swim, the more perfect your bubble ring will be!
  5. Once you reach the surface, take a breath and watch your beautiful bubble ring float away!

What You Need

  • A container to blow the bubbles in. A clean, round fish bowl works well, but any sort of glass or plastic container with smooth sides will do.
  • A means to create bubbles. You can use a straw, a small aquarium bubbler, or a purpose-built ring blower.
  • Water.
  • Optional: soap, glycerin, or other additives to help the bubbles last longer.


  1. Fill your container about halfway with water. If you’re using soap, add a drop or two now and stir it around to distribute it evenly.
  2. Put your bubbler in the center of the container and turn it on, or else get ready to blow bubbles through your straw.
  3. Slowly lower the straw into the water so that the end is just below the surface.
  4. Blow a bubble and allow it to rise to the surface. As it does so, give it a little twist so that it forms a spiral shape.5) Once the bubble reaches the surface, gently poke it so that it breaks open and forms a ring shape. Repeat this process until you’ve made as many rings as you want!

Making the Bubble Ring

A bubble ring is a beautiful thing to see, and they are not that difficult to make underwater. With a little practice, you can be making them yourself in no time.

Here is what you will need:

  • A swimming pool or other large body of still water
  • A diving mask
  • Snorkel
  • Fins
  • Towel

First, find a spot in the pool where you are comfortable and can touch the bottom. It should also be deep enough that you can swim around without hitting your head on the bottom or sides of the pool. Once you have found a good spot, take a deep breath and dive down to the bottom.

Next, expel some air from your lungs slowly. As you do this, curl your tongue back and suck in some water through your teeth. This will create a small vortex of water at the center of your mouth.

Now, close your lips around the Vortex and expelled all of the air from your lungs. You should now have a ring of water around your mouth. If not, try again by expelling more air from your lungs or sucking in more water through your teeth.

Once you have made the ring, start swimming slowly towards the surface while keeping the ring around your mouth. As you swim up, the pressure on the bubble will decrease and it will start to expand. When it reaches its maximum size, it will break free from your mouth and float to the surface of the pool where it will pop.

Tips and Tricks

Bubble rings are one of the most gratifying and visually stunning things you can do with a straw and some water. The physics behind bubble rings is actually quite simple. When you blow a bubble into water, the surface tension of the water creates an indentation around the bubble. This indentation then snaps shut, forming a ring made completely out of bubbles!

With a little practice, you can create beautiful bubble rings that will amaze your friends and family. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you get started:

  • Start with still water. Bubble rings are much easier to create in water that is not moving. If you’re having trouble creating bubble rings in a swimming pool or lake, try using a tub or even a large bowl of water.
  • Use a straw to blow your bubbles. It’s much easier to control the size and shape of your bubbles when you use a straw. You can also use an eyedropper or syringe to create smaller bubbles, which can be helpful if you’re having trouble getting thehang of it.
  • Create a small opening for your bubble ring. The smaller the opening, the slower the ring will move and the easier it will be to control. Once you’ve created your bubble ring, you can make it go faster or slower by changing the size of the opening.
  • Practice makes perfect! The more you practice, the better you’ll get at creating perfect bubble rings. So keep at it and have fun!


Here is a summary of what we learned about making bubble rings underwater: -The key to making bubble rings is to create a vortex in the water. -You can create a vortex by blowing air into the water or by using an object to stir the water. -Once you have created a vortex, you can then insert a ring into the center of the vortex. -The ring will then travel around the vortex and eventually rise to the surface. -You can vary the size and shape of your rings by changing the size and shape of your Vortex.
