Getting set-up to do this activity couldn’t be easier. Just grab a water bottle and cut off the bottom. Put a sock (probably one you don’t mind throwing out afterwards) over the cut end and use packing tape to make it stick to the bottle.

Bubble Activity

It was a little windy the day we did it so the bubbles kept breaking off when they reached about 18”. (probably why my kids though they looked like clouds). 

If you did this on a non windy day I bet you could get the clouds to be a couple feet long at least!

I do want to point out that the food coloring will probably get on your child’s hands. It washed right off later that night. But do be careful about how much food coloring you use, especially if you adore the swimsuit or play clothes your children are wearing.
