Thursday 14th May

Hello everyone,

I hope you have all been having a good week so far. A huge thank you to all the families that have uploaded photos of the children doing the activities from their friends.

All the parents have been creating fantastic learning opportunities for their children at home. We are enjoying sharing these with all the children.

Here is another activity that has been done by one of our friends

Blowing Bubbles

What you will need:

  • A Container
  • Water
  • Washing up liquid
  • Sugar
  • Teaspoon
  • a straw or home made bubble wand.

Instructions:

  • Measure 1/2 cup of water into a container
  • Add 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Add 2 teaspoons of washing up liquid
  • Mix together carefully
  • Use a straw or bubble wand to blow bubbles.

Here is how our friend was blowing bubbles on the table!

We would love to see how you get on.

Did you know that blowing bubbles develops so many skills. Fine motor by holding the wand/straw. Focus and concentration for the actual blowing. Muscle control in and around the mouth that helps with speech. All of this is just the blowing of them. Add on watching the bubbles or chasing and bursting the bubbles (if you have used a wand) and you have even more skills being developed. This is a simple but great activity.

How big a bubble can you blow before it pops!

Goodbye and stay safe everyone.
