I have seen these done all over the web and have wanted to give them a try with my children. Then I found out that when we were going to visit my mom last weekend our cousin was going to be there too (he is the same age as my oldest) so I thought it would be the perfect time to try these out!
Boy was I right the kids all loved it. I was not sure if my little one would be able to do it but she did. It is actually very easy to blow the bubbles and does not take much air so even my little two year old did it. The older two had fun trying to make big long snakes, however it was so windy that the wind kept blowing them off before they got too big.
The kids did not let the wind stop them though they kept blowing and then stomping the bubble snakes when they came off the bottles. I do recommend doing this when it is not so windy but last weekend it was windy the whole time (that is life in the Midwest!) we made do and still had fun though!
To make these I actually used old baby wash cloths I had that we don’t use anymore. At first I was just going to tuck the excess wash cloth into the rubber bands but I finally decided to just cut it off since we were not going to use the wash clothes anymore. However you don’t have to cut yours or you could just put a sock on the end of the bottle and that would work too!
