Operation Play Time - Make bubbles

After the mess of yesterday's Operation Playtime - today it is time to make bubbles.

Blowing bubbles is great for oral motor development - developing the breath control to make a bubble, fine motor development - dipping the wand into the mixture container / popping bubbles using fingers, and gross motor development - waving the wand to create a 'stream' of bubbles / running around chasing bubbles.

We love blowing bubbles (although meany mummy keeps them for a garden or bath activity). Today it was in the bath as it's far too cold to be in the garden and we blew our bubbles using straws having competitions to see who could make the most or the biggest or (our favourite trick) bubbles inside bubbles!
