Rainbow Bubble Snakes

Rainbow Bubble Snakes – I’ve seen these on a few blogs recently so thought I would give it a try with my daughter who is a huge fan of bubbles.

Rainbow Bubble Snakes using a bottle and a sock

What you will need:

  • An empty plastic bottle
  • Duct tape or elastic band
  • A sock
  • Washing up liquid
  • Food colouring

Cut the end off your plastic bottle and put the sock on the end (we had quite a selection to choose from).

Rainbow bubble snakes are easy to make using empty water bottles

Secure with either duct tape or an elastic band.

Raid your odd socks stash to make your bubble snakes
In a tray or washing up bowl mix some washing up liquid with water (a good squirt).

Dip the sock end in the mixture and gently blow.

To make rainbow bubbles, add a few drops of colouring onto the sock before dipping into the mixture.

The colour didn’t work too well but the kids really loved making these and we would definitely do it again on a stay at home day.

Just a quick note that younger children may need reminding to blow rather than suck. It doesn’t taste very nice.

If you enjoyed making the Rainbow Bubble Snakes then you may also enjoy some of the other things we’ve made in our Kids Crafts Section.
