Miss Natalie LOVES to use bubbles in her music classes for preschoolers, infants and toddlers. Using bubbles with toddlers and babies helps to develop hand eye coordination, as well as the ability to track objects in motion.
We all know that babies and toddlers (even grown ups too!) LOVE bubbles. But all bubbles are not created equally. Some bubbles pop very quickly before little ones have a chance to pop them! A good bubble solution will last a long time, creating an "under the sea" feeling with a room full of floating bubbles.
Miss Natalie searched far and wide for the perfect bubbles and couldn't find them in a store. So she rolled up her sleeves and set to work making her own bubbles for Littletunes Music Class. Here is her magical recipe!
2 cups water
2 tbsp corn syrup
2 tbsp vegetable glycerin (you can find this on amazon)
1 packet unflavored plain gelatin
1 tbsp dawn dish detergent
Bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat and mix in all the other ingredients. Let sit overnight. In the morning you will have bubbles! You can use these with any bubble wand for long lasting bubbles.
Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers love these bubbles and there are many songs you can sing with bubbles as well! Pretend you are "Under the Sea", or you can sing any nursery rhyme or song about the ocean/sailing.
We hope you will enjoy this bubble recipe for your little ones! Write us and let us know what songs you like to sing with bubbles!
