How Do the Bubble Snakes Form?
As you blow through the water bottle, tiny bubbles are formed in the holes in the socks. All of these tiny bubbles stick together making one large bubble. As you continue to blow, the tiny bubbles continue to stick together and form a long bubble (or snake!).
- Empty water bottle
- Bubble solution
- Plate or shallow tray
How to Make Bubble Snakes
1. Cut the bottom 1/3 off of an empty water bottle.
You may need to use an X-acto knife or heavy duty scissors to cut the bottom of the water bottle. An adult should do this part.
2. Cut a sock in half.
Stretch the sock over the cut end of the water bottle so that it fits snugly.
If the sock is loose, you can use a rubber band to hold it in place.
3. Pour bubble solution into a plate or shallow tray.
4. Dip the sock end of the water bottle into the bubble solution.
5. Blow bubbles!
Blow into the opposite end of the water bottle and watch bubble snakes grow! You can keep dipping the end of the water bottle into the solution to create more bubbles.
Kids will have a blast with this fun bubble activity. They will want to make snake bubbles over and over again this summer!
