Who doesn’t like bubbles? I think they bring out the child in everyone. These bubble snakes had everyone joining in.

Be sure to follow my outside activity boardoutside activity board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own bubble snakes you will need:

  • Plastic bottle
  • Old sock
  • Colouring (optional)
  • Bubble solution

Please make sure you tell children to only blow into the bottle, not suck. I didn’t think I had to explain it to YC, who is 8. How wrong was I. I turned to watch her literally inhale the bubbles.

I used a bubble solution that I have made previously. It’s pretty easy to make, it works best when left for a few hours before using it.

To make the bubble snake devise, for want of a better word, cut off the end of your bottle. I’ve tried really hard not to use any plastic bottles this year, so I had to wait until I someone else had used one.

Next cover the end with an old sock.

If you want to add a bit of colour to your bubbles, then add a few drops of food colouring to the end of the sock. I will say it only added colour to the actual bubbles for a few goes.

Dip the end into the bubble solution and then blow threw the mouth hole.

Our bubble blowing quickly descended into a foam fight. Our garden was a covered in foam. It was amazing. An absolutely success for all ages.
