Bubble Snakes (Outdoor Activity)

With the weather starting to get nice, I thought I would post a fun activity you can do in your yard with your kids. I found these bubble snakes all over Pintrest and I thought they looked so cool. My kids and I made them and they had a lot of fun.
I just want to give you a few tips before you make these. If you choose to use food colouring, I don’t recommend letting the kids handle it because it stains. If you have little ones, try to show them not to breathe in when blowing the bubbles. My 2 year old was fine but my 4 year old got a nice mouth full of soap.

Dip your bottom part of the bottle in the soapy mix and blow out the top of the bottle.
To add colours, put 2 drops of food colouring on the bottom of the sock, have them dip the bottle and blow coloured bubbles.
