I finally joined Pinterest a few weeks ago, and kinda went nuts looking through stuff and getting new ideas for crafts, cooking and kids activities. I had been putting off joining because I thought that when I joined, I was going to waste huge amounts of time browsing. I have been pleasantly surprised to find that I can browse very quickly and re-pin things and then when I want to do an activity, I have a whole bunch of ideas to choose from. I actually has been a time saver, because now I have one resource to go to when searching for new activities. Anyways, all this to say that I found this idea through another idea that a friend had posted on Pinterest. It’s again from the Juggling With Kids blog (that’s where I found the Fireworks in a vase idea).
What you need:
- plastic bottle
- old face cloth
- dish soap
- elastic band
- Cut out the bottom of your plastic bottle.
- Cut your old face cloth into a circle big enough to cover the bottom of your bottle and to go part way up the side.
- Secure face cloth to the bottle with your elastic band.
- Fill a medium sized bowl with water and add a squirt of dish soap.
- Blow into the top of the bottle.
NOTE: I think we added too much soap! We couldn’t get really long snakes and it took a whole bunch of air to get medium snakes.
This was a fun activity, but much messier than regular bubbles. We’ll probably stick to regular bubbles to keep so much soap off our yard, hair, clothes etc.!
