It took a while to find a water bottle, in the end we used an old soda bottle from Gideon's box of craft stuff, but otherwise the materials (dish soap, old sock) were easy to locate and assemble (cut off bottom of bottle, slide on the sock, mix a little water in with soap in a dish) and before we knew it we were outside blowing bubble snakes like professionals.
At the end of the original blog post she mentions that her kids made rainbow bubbles by putting drops of food coloring on the sock end of the blower. she says " It was a bit messy, but the kids LOVED it! Lots of fun giggles." Well obviously I would be a bad mom if I didn't go for the fun and giggles so I grabbed some green and blue and we tried it out. At first it was like "WOW, COLORED BUBBLES!"
Then it was "Oops colored hands" but no big deal.
Then my husband got home from racquetball and was all "AHHH, colored table"
|(he got out a sponge and started cleaning like the awesome guy he is. I kept on blowing bubbles)|
|It's hard to tell here but he has a pale green face|
All culminating in a long shower and green fingers at soccer class today. Oh and a blue green picnic table and blue and green stained pj shirt. Andplusalso a stained patio. And I have blue feet.
