Hands-on learning awaits...

Bubbles are an entertaining way to spend an afternoon, but have you ever made a bubble snake? All you need are a few household materials, and you can make a bunch of bubble snakes to float around in your back yard!


  • Empty bottle
  • Shallow bowl
  • Tape or a rubber band
  • A sock or piece of cloth material
  • Dish soap
  • Scissors or exacto knife
  • Food coloring if you want to make colorful bubbles


  1. Cut the bottom of your water bottle off.
  2. Slide the sock or wrap your cloth over the bottom of the bottle.
  3. Secure the material with tape or a rubber band.
  4. Pour dish soap and a little bit of water into a shallow container and mix. You can also use bubble solution.
  5. Dip the material-covered bubble blower into the solution and gently blow.
  6. Experiment with different materials and different food coloring drops on the cloth-covered end of the bottle. Try making a rainbow bubble snake!
