Bubble Snakes

Making rainbow bubble snakes is a perfect summer time activity. Just remember to blow air out and not suck in, or else you’re eating bubbles!

What you’ll need:

  • Empty water bottle
  • Shallow container
  • Duct tape
  • A sock missing its match
  • Dish soap
  • Scissors
  • OPTIONAL: Food coloring



  1. Cut the bottom of a water bottle off and slide the sock over the bottom of the bottle.
  2. Use the duct tape or a rubber band to secure the sock.
  3. Pour dish soap and a little bit of water into a shallow container and mix.
  4. Dip the sock covered bubble blower into the solution and gently blow.
  5. Optional: Add different food coloring drops onto the sock-covered end of the bottle to make a rainbow bubble snake!

This project was inspired by this activity.
