KENTUCKY (June 4th - June 10th Hooked on Science - Bubble Snake)


• Water Bottle
• Rubber Band
• Washcloth
• Food Coloring
• Miracle Bubbles
• Dishwashing Liquid
• Glycerin


STEP 1: Using a knife, have an adult, remove the bottom of the water
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. Describe and classify the solution by its observable
STEP 5: Dip the washcloth into the super bubble solution, blow
through the mouth of the water bottle, and observe. Describe and
classify the bubble snake by its observable properties.


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 into the air, creating a bubble snake.


PLEASE follow these safety precautions when doing any science

• ALWAYS have an adult present.
• ALWAYS wear the correct safety gear while doing any
• NEVER eat or drink anything when performing any experiment.
• REMEMBER experiments may require marbles, small balls,
balloons, and other small parts. Those objects could become
a CHOKING HAZARD. Adults are to perform those
experiments using these objects. Any child can choke or
suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Keep uninflated or
broken balloons away from children.
