Snake Bubbles September 4, 2012

Here is a really quick and easy activity to do with your toddler. I saw this on this blog http://www.housingaforest.com/rainbow-bubble-snakes/.


What you need

Empty water bottle

fuzzy sock

Thick Tape (i used electrical tape..of course)

Tupperware bowl

liquid dish soap


First I cut the water bottle in half, discarded the bottom part. Next wrap a sock around the open part of the bottle, and cut off half the sock, leaving at least 2 inches of sock coming up the bottle. Then wrap the crap out of the sock with tape to stick to bottle. I notice the bottle with the most tape worked the best (the far right in pic above). Now put 1/4 cup of liquid dish soap in a tupperwear container & add 3 TB of water. That’s it!

Sharing the soap, thats what I like to see boys!

Now take the fuzzy sock end and dip it in the soapy water.

It doesn’t take much to get big bubbles!

Next blow into the water bottle and watch your snake bubble appear!

The snake bubble can get really long if you have lots of soapy water on the end

The boys really loved these bubbles. J thought it was soo neat he could barely wait for me to rip the bubbles off the bottle and let him grab it.

The bubbles float in the air in a big clump, J loved chasing it.

We had a fun bubble day!

You can also use a few drops of food coloring in the soapy water for bright-colored bubbles!
