Blowing bubbles

Bubbles are great fun for toddlers - they love the way they float, the way they pop and the way they sparkle in the light.

But they're also a great prompt for chatting to them too - it lets them practice words like 'blow', 'pop', 'up' and 'down'.

And if you build their excitement, they are more likely to say words and make noises.
