I mentioned in the Weekend Snapshot on Sunday that we had done “Rainbow Bubble Snakes” one evening as a family. As promised, here is the explanation of what a Rainbow Bubble Snake is.
I read about this fun (and super inexpensive!) activity in the Housing a Forest blog over here. You won’t believe how simple this activity is to create! All you need is an empty plastic bottle, an old sock (we have a plethora of mismatched ones in the laundry room – it was nice to finally have a real use for them!), dish soap, duck tape, water, a shallow dish (like a pie pan), and food coloring (if you want to use it). Be sure to read Tammy’s tutorial for setting these up. You’ll be making bubble snakes in a matter of minutes!
The kids had so. much. fun! Pretty soon our yard was filled with colorful tufts of bubbles:
Naomi made some really good ones:
The only precaution I want to give you (and I seriously can’t believe I have to say this) is tell your kids NOT to suck in on the bottles. Will decided to attempt this and literally spent the remainder of the night burping out bubbles. (I am not exaggerating – bubbles were literally inflating on his lips every time he burped.) So learn from my son and you will be able to enjoy this fun activity without spending the night looking like this:
