The start of something extraordinary

Dishwashing Bubbles

Small children don’t always instinctively know how to blow bubbles. We can end up with lots of coughing and spluttering if we try to teach pre-schoolers to blow bubbles in water if they have not already mastered the skills of blowing out on cue. Playing with bubbles in the sink and blowing bubbles through the ring are great ways to encourage pre-schoolers to blow as opposed to suck.  Dishwashing liquid and water make for hours of fun. Blowing bubbles can be an inside game over the sink. Language like big and small, soft and hard, fat checks, skinny checks can also be used.
