Bubble Snake Blower

There is something about playing outside with bubbles that always gets the kids excited. Playing with bubbles is one of the best summer activity for children of all ages as it is low prep but lots of fun! Making a bubble snake blower is so easy following our simple instructions and it will amaze the kids. The kids have done this activity as toddlers, preschoolers and now they are older and they have loved it every time.


We love being creative outside whenever we can. Take a look at our easy outdoor art for kids for lots of fun ideas.

Children love bubbles! Whether it is a small pot of bubbles, giant bubbles or a bubble blower kids seem to love them all! When the weather isn't great you can even try bubble painting inside which is lots of messy fun! Bubble sensory play is fun for toddler and preschoolers too!

Making bubble snake blowers is so easy using just a bottle, a sock and an elastic band. Honestly these easy to make bubble blowers will keep the kids entertained outside for hours during the summer. I love all the giggles we hear as we play with ours, it really is magical.

To make a bubble snake blower you will need:



  • A plastic drink bottle
  • An old sock (a small child's sock is a perfect fit)
  • Bubble mixture in a bowl (we used washing up liquid (dish soap) mixed with water)

How to make a bubble snake blower


  1. Cut the bottom off a plastic drink bottle (see image above). This is a great way of recycling old bottles that you no longer need. Any plastic bottles will work, but those with a sports bottle cap are better as they mean it is harder to accidently breath in any of the bubble mixture. 
  2. Pull a sock over the bottom of the bottle and secure it in place with an elastic band. Any sized sock will work, or even a piece of material, but a child's sock is a perfect fit. 
  3. Dip the sock covered bottle into your bubble mixture.  To make the mixture simple mix washing up liquid (dish soap) with water in a small bowl. 
  4. Blow through the top of the bottle.
  5. Have lots of fun making bubble snakes.

You can have so much fun with these bubble blowers. See your child's face light up as they blow a bubble snake for the first time. They will love running around the garden with them and having competitions to see how long they can make them.

Be careful not to breathe in whilst your mouth is over the bottle. Harry did this the first time he had a go and ended up breathing in lots of bubbles which didn't taste too good.

Harry: Age 3

Harry was really amazed by the bubble snakes he created.  He loved blowing bubbles and trying to catch the bubble snakes that I made.  We had a competition to see who could make the longest bubble snake (the winner was Harry of course!)
