Five Ways to Play with Bubbles
Bubbles are such an easy and basic activity - but I would be remiss if I didn't include it because EVERY CHILD loves bubbles. It doesn't seem to matter how old they are - bubbles are fascinating. Obviously older children like to make their own, but even then they are still entranced and it adds fine motor skills to the fun. For all children there is the opportunity for language to be incorporated. Saying "pop" when the bubble bursts, labeling parts of the body bubbles land on, asking for more, etc. Hours of entertainment from just a little bottle of bubbles. In our case, I first introduced them when my son seemed interested in wind. He noticed the wind blowing on one of our walks and later when we were playing outside he watched leaves blowing. Bubbles floating in the wind seemed like another way to explore this interest.
