How to Play

Blow bubbles with the bubble wand in to an open space. Give children a stick of some sort (popsicle sticks, toothpicks or pipe cleaners) and ask them to pop the bubbles with only the stick.

Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options
  • If you have someone who has a visual impairment, blow the bubbles close to that individual so they are able to feel them popping on their skin. This person can also use a finger to pop them bubble for the same reason.
  • If you have someone who has a gross motor limitation or uses a wheelchair, ensure the play space is clear of obstacles. 
  • If someone has limited function in their arms, consider attaching a longer stick to their chair so they can wheel or drive the stick in to the bubbles.
