Bubble Fun at Early Childhood

At Early Childhood students learn that not only is bubble play an easy way to have fun, it's also a fun way to work on a host of developmental skills, such as:

Fine Motor - practice using hands in different ways to pop the bubbles

Visual Tracking - following the flight of the bubbles

Hand/Eye Coordination - Dipping of the wand into the mix and blowing

Sensory Processing - Bubbles are wet, slimy and sticky

Oral Motor - Blowing bubbles is wonderful exercise for little mouths

Social and Communication - Children learn to take turns, practice personal space concepts

Gross Motor - Reach for those bubbles, run after them, jump, stomp and squat to get them

Following Directions - Listen to new ways to pop bubbles with fingers, feet, hands

Language and Cognitive Skills - talk about the bubbles and what they are doing, where they are flying, go pop the biggest one


And Have Fun, Learning, Playing and Growing Together!
