Updated: Aug 3, 2021


Prep time: 2 minutes

Difficulty: Easy Peasy

Estimated Cost: 20 AED

Mess level: Mediumn

Age: 6 months plus

What you need:

  • Container

  • Whisk

  • Food dye


Whisk in a bowl the washing up liquid quickly to get large bubbles. Tip: mix in a food processor for the bubbles to become more intense and therefore more fun. Add food dye to create different colours.


Anytime you’re creating and presenting anything interesting to your child, they are learning! Either from using their senses or their imagination, or even a combination of both!


Playing with bubbles provides many good opportunities for development. As your child grows talk about the bubbles being; big, small, wet, slimy and how they are moving; fast, slow etc. Your child will enjoy playing with foam and see it transform from a liquid. Allow the fun and excitement to guide their curiosity and learning.

Can you imagine what a toddler is thinking when they see a huge pile of bubbles appear? They are probably wondering why the bubbles feel light as air, what causes bubbles to pop, and learning a bit about cause and effect at the same time!

Ways to adapt:

Add a straw to the mixture and blow, children will love seeing towers and the bubbles grow.
