These Rainbow Bubble Snakes are a colorful way for kids to play with bubbles and a fun recycled craft!
We love making bubble art and could not wait to do this variation by making Rainbow Bubble Snakes! We have tried making a twist on bubble snakes by using a bottle bubble blower and they make the most beautiful bubbles. We’ve even tried bottle bubble art painting too!
This version is a bit different as it uses a sock and dish soap instead of bubble solution. And of course food coloring for making rainbow bubbles! It’s absolutely mesmerizing when you blow the snake bubbles out and a rainbow forms!
What do you need to make Rainbow Bubble Snakes?
You are going to love this activity because you probably already have all the materials at home! You’ll need a plastic bottle, old sock, dish soap and food coloring.
We love using these super bright neon food colors but they don’t come in yellow, so we added yellow food gel coloring which works out just fine too! So the good news is that you can use either gel or liquid food coloring.
A note on food coloring and this activity – if your kids want to touch the rainbow foam, which I guarantee you they will! – note that food coloring WILL stain your hands immediately!
A good amount of immediate scrubbing with soap, especially dish soap will take most of it off. But be warned it WILL stain hands and clothing.
So makes sure your kids are wearing an old tee or covering when they are doing this activity. You can also have them wear disposable gloves if you don’t want their hands to be covered in color should they touch the bubbles.
We also recommend doing this activity outside over the grass, a covered area with a paint drop cloth, or an area where you won’t stain the pavement or outdoor furniture.
