Bubbles and Their Benefits: The Senses
In the final installment of our series on bubbles and their benefits, we explore how the beautiful shapes, colors, and sizes of bubbles help children develop sensory skills!
Visual Tracking Skills
Watching bubbles as they move through the air is a great way to hone visual tracking skills. Children love following after bubbles with their eyes, which increases their ability to focus on an object moving through their visual field. Tracking is an important skill to develop early on since it is used in almost all daily activities including reading, writing, drawing, and playing.
It takes practice to coordinate between the eyes and the hands to dip and blow bubbles. This fun way of practicing can translate to other skills requiring hand-eye coordination like writing or catching a ball. Bubble World bubbles have an added benefit for hand-eye coordination with the maze game located on top of the cap!
Bubbles feel wet and slimy and sticky! Exposing children to many different sensations guides their ability to process and understand the way things feel.
