Outdoor Fun - Rainbow Bubble Snakes!
We would never have believed this activity is as simple to assemble as Tammy of Housing a Forest insisted it is, but after reading her post, we're believers! Round up the kiddos because we know this is going to be an instant hit!
Supplies You'll Need
- Recycled water bottle
- Duct tape or thick rubber band
- Dish soap
- Food coloring
Not only is this a fun summer activity to do together, it's a great way to explore basic color theory and you might even consider throwing a bit of math into the mix. For example, compare bubble snakes using comparative language - longest, shortest, longer than, shorter than, etc. - or get out a measuring tape, practicing proper measuring techniques and determining the length of each bubble snake.
[NOTE: We haven't tried it, but you might also try bubble painting with these fun contraptions! If you do, let us know how it goes!]
