Play with bubbles

Bubbles are a fun activity for curious babies.

Babies will love playing with bubbles. During play time, use a bottle of bubbles and gently blow them near your baby. Be careful they don’t get in their eyes.

Sit with your baby and point at the bubbles. Practice tracking them with your finger. This helps your baby’s eyes and coordination develop.

You can try making popping noises when you pop them. See how your baby responds to the new sights and sounds.

Games like this help your baby learn to track objects with their eyes. They become more aware of shape, form and texture, and reaching for the bubbles can help with coordination.

Bubbles are a good game for indoors and outdoors.
