Sensory Activity For Kids:

Bubble sensory play

“Let’s see how big a bubble you can blow with this straw and bubble solution!” or “See how mummy blows bubbles”. You say to your kids as they shriek with delight. Bubbles are fun!

I like this activity because it is so simple, requiring only a few basic supplies and you can make your own bubble solution. Older kids can blow the bubbles themselves and younger kids can play with the bubbles as you blow. Just add bubble solution to a bowl, add food coloring and blow away, letting your kids play.

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup bubble bath or dish soap

This activity is inspired by ideas from Bubble sensory play.

This activity is great to teach your kids:

Colour recognition activities helps children get to know the different colors and color blending and matching.

Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.

Step 1

Gather all the supplies

Step 2

Add the bubble solution and food coloring to a bowl

Step 3

Take the straw and blow bubbles or let your older kids blow themselves

This activity must be done with care to avoid the bubble solution getting in your kids mouths, like it happened with my son. He preferred using the bubble wand that came with the bubble solution. While my daughter preferred transferring the bubble solution from the container to the window.

This blowing bubbles sensory play for babies and toddlers is a fun sensory exploration of touch and delight.
