*First things first, this fun activity is not for small children. Please supervise your little ones and make sure they are blowing OUT, not sucking in.*
Here’s an idea that will keep kids busy!!!! I thought with the warm temperature coming and kids out of school, now would be the time to bust out this idea! Making some Bubbles
To start out you need a water bottle…empty.
I gave my kids a water bottle and they drank it fast. Okay they didn’t…I caught them pouring it on the plants, but it was a good thought! Is it just my kids who would rather have their teeth pulled than drink a glass of water!?!
Back to making snake bubbles…Cut off the bottom of the water bottle.
Use a piece of fabric and put an elastic around it to hold it on. An old rag or an old sock does the trick. Hey, we are recycling 2 things, water bottles and socks. Here’s to a green tutorial!
Put some dish soap in a shallow bowl. I added a little water to make it go further.
Start making bubbles by blowing.
Tip: Don’t let them blow too hard or the rag will pop off. A light steady gust of air will produce bubbles to make your little ones squeal. I think I heard my husband squeal too, but he’d never admit that:)
Have a contest for the longest snake, make a hat with the trail of bubbles, or try to pop them as they float away.
Making bubbles with kids is super fun and thrifty!
