Using a pair of scissors or a craft knife (and adult supervision), help your child by cutting the bottom off the plastic bottle.

With your kids, cover the open end of your bottle with a piece of fabric that is similar to a washcloth or cotton sock.  We used a flannel and cut it into a circle shape (to keep the ends from dipping into your bubble mixture).

Secure with a rubber band to keep the fabric in place.

Make your own bubble mixture (the mixture isn’t safe to drink)

Homemade bubble mixture is a doddle to make, but you really need to remember the magic ingredient!

  • Washing up liquid
  • Water
  • Glycerine (found in the baking section at the supermarket)

homemade bubble mixture

Mix 3 tablespoons of washing up liquid with 250ml of water (distilled water gives the best results) and add 1 tablespoon of glycerine.  This mix is best left overnight to settle before using.

Place your bubble mix into a shallow bowl or plate.

We decided to add some color to the bubble snakes with food coloring.  The kids dropped the food coloring onto the fabric covered end.  It was a bit messy, but the kids loved it.  You could also use liquid watercolors too.

Dip the fabric in the bubble solution and give the bottle a blow.  Blowing slowly produces the longest snakes.  We had a lot of wind and it kept blowing our snakes away!
