WARNING: Make sure to do the following project with a parent for extra precaution. 


To make Snake Bubbles, you will need:

  • A recycled plastic water bottle
  • A sock
  • A small bowl
  • Liquid food coloring
  • Scissors
  • Water
  • Liquid dish soap


  1. Using the scissors, cut off the bottom of the bottle.
  2. Put the sock tightly over the bottle, if necessary you can trim the end of the sock. Roll any extra sock down, so you can see the top of the bottle.
  3. Squirt a generous amount of the dish soap into the small bowl. Add about a tablespoon of water to the bowl and mix. The mixture should be mostly soap.
  4. Find a place where the food coloring won’t get on anything important.
  5. Dip the bottom of the sock into the soap mixture.
  6. Put drops of food coloring on the sock in this order: red, yellow, green, blue.
  7. Blow through the head of the bottle to create a long rainbow bubble snake. Remember, always blow out, never inhale, or you could get bubbles in your mouth!
  8. Have fun!
