Hooked on Science - Super Bubble Snake

hooked science 300KENTUCKY (7/9/13) - We typically see a lot of different snakes during the summer time, but have you ever seen a bubble snake? Jason Lindsey aka “Mr. Science” shows us how to create a bubble snake by using a few ingredients from around the house.
 
INGREDIENTS
•Water Bottle
•Rubber Band
•Washcloth
•Food Coloring
•Miracle Bubbles
•Dishwashing Liquid
•Glycerin

INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1:  Using a knife, have and adult, remove the bottom of the water bottle.
STEP 2:  Secure the washcloth to the bottom of the water bottle with the rubber band.
STEP 3: Add a few drops of food coloring to the bottom of the water bottle, on the washcloth.
STEP 4: Pour some of the miracle bubbles into an empty bowl.  Add some of the dishwashing liquid and glycerin to the miracle bubbles and mix.  
STEP 5: Dip your snake bubble blower into the super bubble solution, blow through the mouth of the water bottle, and observe.
 
EXPLANATION
The tiny holes in the washcloth allow you to blow hundreds of tiny bubbles at once. The tiny bubbles attach to each other, which keeps them from floating in the air and creates your bubble snake.
