If you have ever been the designated bubble blower for your kids, you know it’s a workout for your lungs. Kids never get tired of popping bubbles! Mine would have me sit there blowing bubbles for hours (or until I passed out from lack of oxygen.) Can you relate?
Lucky for us, a creative parent decided to save our breath and invented a bubble blower machine. Our bubble maker is one of our favorite toys ever! It provides endless bubbles for my kids. All I have to do is keep it filled with bubble solution and batteries. I can handle that!
We turn on the bubbles for hours of active play.
A bubble blowing toy is something children of all ages can enjoy. Even babies are mesmerized by bubbles floating by! My 3- and 5-year-old boys love to pop bubbles, and we have several simple games we play.
Bubbles can be a fun way to get kids active, teach them simple skills and use their imaginations. A few of our favorite bubble games are:
Bubble Clap and Pop ABC and 123 Game
Have your child pop the bubbles by clapping their hands. Every time they clap a bubble, say a letter of the ABCs. Try to get all the way to Z! Learn to count the bubbles 1, 2, 3 as you clap and pop each one.
This is a fun one. Kids can only pop bubbles with their feet! Have them stomp bubbles on the ground.
Play music while the bubbles are blowing. Let your child pretend to be a bubble, and float fast or slow depending on the music’s tempo.
Give each child a flyswatter and let them swat away at the bubbles!
