Looking for some fun activities for toddlers? Make some bubbles!
Do you have a toddler in your house? Our little guy is 2 1/2. Not quite a preschooler, but a busy little guy who’s learning every day. After seeing his fascination with the soap bubbles as I wash dishes, I knew he’d love to make some bubbles of his own. Today I’m sharing seven simple activities for toddlers – all featuring bubbles.
1 – Bubbles with a bucket, some soap, and a whisk
This is for those moms like me who don’t like a lot of mess in the house and who lack the time and creativity to set up an amazing sensory experience. It was so fun to watch my little guy get to work!
Use the hose to put some water in a bucket. Add a few squirts of dish soap. Add toddler and a whisk.
After big brothers (ages 4 and 5) help make some nice bubbles, dig in!
Scoop and pour.
When Mom’s not looking, use up the rest of the dish soap. She must not mind too much, though, because she grabbed her camera for this shot.
Stay busy for a good 40 minutes!
