Make a bubble snake maker

Make a bubble snake maker

Kids love bubbles! Don't be afraid of the mess, this fantabulous bubble snake maker is an easy activity idea for kids, turning trash into treasure.

What you need:

  • 1 x 500ml water bottle
  • 1 x old wash cloth
  • 1 x rubber band
  • scissors
  • water
  • a few drops of dishwashing liquid

Number of players:


Cut off the bottom of the water bottle. Use scissors or a stanley knife (an adult should do this part).

Now place your bottle onto the wash cloth and use it to trace out a circle that is about 2.5cm bigger than the base of the bottle.

Cut that circle out of the wash cloth.

Place it over the open end of the bottle and secure it with a rubber band.

Your bubble blower is now ready to load!

Put some water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid into a small dish or bowl. Dip the wash cloth end of the bubble blower into the soapy water.

Blow into the other end. Keep blowing.  You'll soon see a long snake of bubbles coming out the other end.

Hours of messy outdoor fun!
