Infant Stimulation Activity 49: bubbles

Bubbles are mesmerizing to babies and therefore a great activity for you and your child during all the stages of childhood. For infants (0-6 months) bubbles are most importantly used as a tool for interaction with you. Your infant will experience your facial expressions and hear your excited voice. Infants will also practice tracking, ie focusing on an object and learning to follow it, as he watches the bubbles float away. As your baby learns to use his arms and hands, he will start to reach out for the bubbles and practice hand-eye coordination. Eventually he will pop a bubble, and learn a lesson in cause and effect: if I swing at a bubble, it will pop!
