Did you know that bubbles can help your baby develop these important skills?
- Following the bubbles with his eyes establishes visual tracking skills, and improves distance and depth perception.
- Swatting at them trains eye-hand coordination.
- Touching them teaches sensory processing. They feel the wet and weird!
- Reaching for them boosts motor skills.
- Popping them gives a valuable lesson in cause and effect.
And check out these fascinating factoids about bubbles that will blow older kids’ minds:
- The biggest free-floating soap bubble ever blown was 105.4 cubic feet and could’ve held an enormous 788 gallons of water!
- It is possible to freeze bubbles! Since a bubble’s shell is a layer of water surrounded by two thin layers of soap, a bubble will freeze just like all water, but it’s only been accomplished under extremely controlled conditions since bubbles tend to pop before they freeze!
We’ve always seen bubbles as being useful and fun — it’s part of the reason why we include a bubble wand on our bubble baths!
