Summary: Bubbles can provide hours of fun and fascination for your baby. If they are too young to blow the bubbles themselves, they will enjoy watching the bubbles float and burst.

Always supervise your child closely in and around water!

  • Bubble wands can easily be made out of pipe cleaners or craft wire.
  • This activity is best done in a shady area outside – burst bubbles can be slippery on concrete or vinyl floors.

Love bubbles - they are a big favourite with us as well! I think play is so important for babies


Detergents vary in final result / success.One of the best is Morning Fresh Super concentrate and it improves with age!
