WEFOUNDBubbles for Toddlers


Bubbles are one of my absolute favorite things to use when playing with kids, especially those virtually indestructible Gymboree bubbles I mentioned yesterday (read post here ). And since I recently began a new job in a new city where I have to start up a new relationship with every single kiddo on my caseload, I’ve been using bubbles with almost all of them on the first day because, let me tell you, it is a fantastic way to break the ice!

Not only is bubble play an easy way to have fun with a new little friend, it’s also a fun way to work on a host of developmental skills, such as:

Babies often love to watch others blow bubbles and think they’re so interesting, and bigger kids love to play with them in all kinds of creative ways. So grab your bubbles and get ready for some beneficial fun, fun, fun!

One word of warning: bubbles + toddlers = bags of fun and giggles. BUT, there will be a lot of SPILLAGE. It is just the way of the world. So when you doing bubble activities with toddlers, DO use homemade easy bubble solutions , because you can literally whip up a BIG BATCH, decant small amounts at a time… and when something accidently gets spilled or knocked, don’t fret… use it as an opportunity to clean the floor and get out some more! After all.. playing with bubbles literally is good CLEAN fun!

The bubble recipe we use, is also the one used by the Bubble Show at the Science Museum London.. how is THAT for endorsement. It is simple and fun.

Many of the bubble activities suggested below can be played in the garden, the house or even in the bath. Just watch for slippery floors if doing this indoors).

Do you have a toddler in your house? Our little guy is 2 1/2.  Not quite a preschooler, but a busy little guy who’s learning every day.   After seeing his fascination with the soap bubbles as I wash dishes, I knew he’d love to make some bubbles of his own.  Today I’m sharing seven simple activities for toddlers – all featuring bubbles.

This is for those moms like me who don’t like a lot of mess in the house and who lack the time and creativity to set up an amazing sensory experience.  It was so fun to watch my little guy get to work!

When Mom’s not looking, use up the rest of the dish soap.  She must not mind too much, though, because she grabbed her camera for this shot.
