Craft of the Month
Every month we will feature a different nature craft you can do at home!
We don't always have to buy new toys. We can make them out of items found around the house!
Materials: plastic water bottle, rubber bands, clean old socks, bubble solution (water, Dawn, glycerin), large bin or bucket
1. Clean a plastic bottle, remove the caps and cut off the bottom of the bottle.
2. Cut the toe of the sock off, leaving you with a 3” piece.
3. Pre-make a bubble solution by mixing 1c Dawn, 1/4c glycerine (found in the drug care aisle), and 12c water; pour solution into the bucket.
4. Give your child one of the bottles you prepared in step 1, a rubber band, and the sock from step 2.
5. Help your child place the sock over the cut end of the bottle and secure it around the bottle using the rubber band.
6. Dip the sock end of the bottle into the prepared bubble solution and blow through the drinking end of the plastic bottle. The child can experiment making different types of bubbles and bubble structures using their new creation.
*Tip – don’t throw unused bubble juice away – it gets better with time!
