A really fun and very easy activity I love is creating a bubble snake. Bubbles are always a winner with my kids and they both love watching the stream of bubbles that comes out of the snake.
What do you need?
- Empty plastic bottle
- A sock (small kids socks work great)
- Plate or container
- Bubble mixture (can be washing up liquid and water)
How to make a Bubble Snake
First you need to take the cap off the empty plastic bottle. Then cut the bottle 2/3rds of the way down and discard the bottom. Be careful to trim off any sharp edges on the cut bottle.
Take your sock and place it tightly over the plastic bottle, leaving the mouthpiece uncovered.
Fill your container with a small layer of bubble mixture solution. Then dip your bottle into the solution.
Now for the fun part! Blow slowly and steadily into the bottle to form your bubble snake. Stand up when you are doing this and see if you can get your snake to touch the floor!
If you are doing this with young kids be mindful they may suck the bottle or breath in rather than blow and end up with a mouthful of bubbles.
