Bubble Socks

You will need:

  • An old bottle
  • Scissors
  • Sock
  • Hair tie or elastic band
  • Washing up bowl
  • Fairy liquid

I saw a viral video from The Dad Lab on Facebook and thought this was worth a go….. Arlo was getting under our feet very early one morning and so I set him up with this and to my surprise it actually worked really well.

All you do is cut the bottom from a bottle, place an old (clean) sock over the end and secure it with the band before dipping it in the bubble solution.

He only had to be shown once how to blow and he was off and away.

We are going to be trying this activity again, with different sized bottles and adding food colouring to the water too. He was just as surprised as me with how many bubbles appeared, and was marching up and down the garden as if he was leading a marching band.
