Activity #76: Blow bubbles

Let’s stay realistic. Bubble blowing is not something that you can build your whole day around, so it’s the type of thing I usually refrain from posting here.

But, watching your baby react to bubbles IS pretty fun. So take them with you in your diaper bag and pull them out whenever you need a distraction.

Bubbles are in the toy aisle of drug stores and can be a fantastic surprise for your baby. If you are lucky enough to find an older child nearby, ask her if she would like to show the baby how bubbles are blown. Then sit back and watch.

I will confess that when my husband calls and says he’s on his way home, we often go wait on the front steps. Bubbles can kick it up a notch. And, one more opportunity for the neighbors who walk by to notice how awesome I am at this mothering thing.
