First Name

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.
