Brief Description

Students will get to create long tubes of bubbles!

This Is How You Play

  1. Cut the water bottle in half and recycle the threaded end (the end where the cap was).
  2. Wrap the fabric (an old sock works best) around the old end of the water bottle and secure with a rubber band.
  3. Dip the fabric end into some soapy water.
  4. Blow into the end without fabric and a bubble snake should grow out of fabric end of the water bottle!

For the soapy water, a rough ratio is about 2 tablespoons of soap per gallon. This doesn't need to be exact but it needs to be pretty soapy.
