Find new ways of using familiar containers, such as exploring bubbles with them.
What You Need:
- 1 empty plastic water bottle (500 ml size) without cap
- A sock that can fit over the water bottle (one side, child or adult size)
- Dish soap and water
- A small container large enough to fit the bottom of a 500 ml water bottle
- Adult scissors (for adult use only)
What To Do:
- Use a pair of scissors to cut off the bottom of a plastic water bottle (an adult does this first step).
- Stretch out the sock and slide it over the cut end of the water bottle to cover the bottle. If needed, fold the sock back so that the mouth of the water bottle (the cap side) is exposed.
- Make a soap solution in the small container by mixing about 2 tablespoons of dish soap in ½ cup of water.
- Dip the bottom end of the bottle (the cut end with the sock over it) into the bubble solution.
- Blow on the mouth of the bottle to make bubble snakes!
- Wonder aloud with your child about how he can make a “long,” “longer” and “longest” bubble snake. Then get a tape measure and together measure his bubble snakes!
