Soap Snakes

We crossed off a summer sand bucket list item today:  soap bubble snakes!  As you can see, the kids had a great time...and our puppies were quite intrigued by the long bubbles blowing around the yard! 

The only materials necessary to make the bubble blowers, are:
  • Plastic water bottles
  • Old cloth (washcloth, sock, etc.)
  • Rubber bands
  • Dish soap
  • Water
To assemble, cut the bottom off of the water bottles and secure a piece of cloth to the end with a rubber band.  Then add some dish soap and a little water to a dish (there's no science here, just more soap than water).  To make a snake, dip the cloth into the soap and blow (lightly, so that the cloth doesn't blow off). 

I've seen people add coloring to the soap, but thought the extra mess wasn't necessary...a choice I'm glad I made since by the end, the kids were covered in bubbles. 

I hope your summer is off to a great start!
