Everyone loves bubbles but what recipe makes the….BEST BUBBLES
After making 3 different bubble recipes in our break room, I found this recipe to be the one which produced the most bubbles. Enjoy! :)
- 6 cups of water
- 2 cups of dish soap
- ¾ cup of corn syrup
Benefits of making and playing with bubbles
- 1.Improves children’s planning skills
- 2.Teaches children the importance of follow direction
- Utilizes visual tracking skills by watching the bubbles!
- Establishes fine motor skills especially stirring those ingredients!
- Utilize it as a calming strategy ~Blowing bubbles helps children learn how to practice deep breathing.
- Encourage your kids to clap the bubbles to improve motor planning and gross motor skills.
Go outside and enjoy this fun activity during the last of our warm, sunny days!
