Snake Bubbles

I am always looking for fun activities to do with my kids. This week we made snake bubbles. These are so easy and you probably already have all the supplies in your house.

You will need:

-an empty bottle (I used a Gatorade bottle)
-rubber band
-terry cloth (I used a wash cloth)
-liquid dish soap
-water

Mix the dish soap with some water, I did a 2 to 1 ratio (2 soap to 1 water). Then cut the bottom off the bottle. Trace the bottom of the bottle onto the terry cloth with about an inch overlap. Cut out the circle and attach it to the bottom of the bottle using the rubber band. Dip the bottom of the bottle into the soap and blow. The bubbles are thick and stick together making a long snake like shape.

We had a contest to see who could make the longest snake. It was so funny to see them blowing and blowing with the big puffy cheeks. SUCCESS!

Going to try this with my kids tomorrow! I hate that they always spill bubbles, and they can never blow them right, so they get frustrated. I think this will be a perfect solution for everyone! Thanks for sharing. :)

I did this today, she was playing for over an hour. This is so fun and easy, thanks. :)

This is a pretty neat idea, however I just want to add that this isn't for younger children. I tried this today with my 2 year old and he inhaled a mouthful of bubbles. The bubbles can very easily be sucked up through the bottle!

Just spent a happy 45 minutes with this activity entertaining our 2 year old and neighborhood kids. It was a windy day and we blew small balls of bubbles for the kids to chase down. Great idea! Our 2 year old did ok with blowing some, but it definitely took lots of effort. Still, he had fun :)

Allison said...

This was a lot of fun until my 5-year-old sucked rather than blew! He was a bit unhappy for quite some time afterwards. If you do this, make sure you tell the kids not to suck! We'll do this again, but I think I'll blow the bubbles and let the kids chase them.

Brenda said...

I LOVE this idea, great one to do with the kids and talk about snakes at art camp! recycling and fun. thanks for sharing I might post this on my site of inspiration if that is okay with you!???

I did this today with the 9 yr old and 6 yr old I nanny for. We used paper towels and a Dawn/water mixture. The 9 yr old was very good at making bubbles, but the 6 yr old (with special needs) had a hard time. They loved the idea though. Thanks for posting!

Dawn said...

I did it with socks. It worked great! We did it for the 4th of July, everyone...even the adults loved it. We did not have much problem with them sucking "in" the bubbles. You can drop food coloring on the sock and the bubbles will be rainbow!

LaTosha said...

This is nest. I live the food color idea with it. I am going to try it with my 4 year old. He loves bubbles! Thanks for this idea.

Would you please update this blog post so that parents are aware to watch the little ones with this because its dangerous. My three kids were making snake bubbles today...the older two did fine but the three year old only did fine for the first five snakes or so...then he got lazy and quit removing the bottle from his mouth when he was taking breaths in...he ended up inhaling soap and throwing up all over the place. He's still having trouble breathing and he's hacking. My bad for not being right there but I know there are others who might like to have a heads up.

The little girl I nanny is obsessed with bubbles! I am going to give this a try soon. Such an easy idea but I have a feeling it will entertain her for a long time.
