Story Time: Bubbles

“Bear blows bubbles!” “B” is for bubbles. Did you know a bubble will always be a sphere unless it’s next to something else that alters its shape? Bubbles are also great for making firends. Have a bubble blowing party with a friend. You might become bubble best buddies!

Talk & Play

Learning to “guess” or hypothesize what will happen when you take an action is an important step in cognitive development and critical thinking. Before you try the following activity, have your child “guess” or question what will happen in this bubble experiment, then have them “test the guess” for the answer.

Activity

Fill a variety of cups with different liquids such as, water, milk, soda, and soup. Then blow bubbles with a straw in each of the liquids. Then answer these questions. Which liquid “holds” a better bubble? Can you pop the bubble?
