Playing with bubbly water helps young children to:
- Enjoy exploring how water behaves
- Learn what they can do with water
- Make bubbles move with their own breath
- Enjoy different play patterns
Cover the floor with a waterproof cloth. Half fill a washing bowl with water and bubble bath and place it on the floor or on the ground. Find some containers for pouring, kitchen tools like small sieves or a plastic colander, and strong margarine tubs. Show your child how to pour the water from a container into the bowl, and how to blow the bubbles on the surface.
