Bubble Science and Recipes

What is it about bubbles that is so captivating to the young and old alike? Is it their beauty that is there for only a brief moment? Is it that they float with little effort before hitting the ground? Or is it their simplicity? I think Grover from Sesame Street explains the love of bubbles best in his poem- “Ode to a Bubble”

Little bubble round and fair,
Floating slowly through the air,
The wind blows you hither yon,
Then you POP-
You are all gone!
You last for a teeny while,
But while you do,
you make me SMILE.
