Blowing bubbles is an activity enjoyed by most children and it makes them breathe a little deeper automatically. This results in more muscle activity in the trunk which in turn results in more awareness of posture and movement of the trunk. This postural and movement awareness, also called proprioceptive information helps a child focusing attention more properly.
It is a suitable activity to carry out with your child occasionally. Not only can you make him blow away the bubbles, but you can make him catch them with the bubble machine as well. Most bubble soap enable him to blow bubbles with it once again. The smartest way is to let your child hold the bubble soap himself. The everyday bubble soap pot is the right soap for this.
Blowing bubbles is a suitable activity to be combined with sitting on a ball.
