Soap bubbles are a great way to help your little one develop visual skills. We are not born with the visual skills required for learning, including the skills of capturing, following, tracing, focusing, convergence, divergence, and so on.
These skills need to be developed over time. How well your child develops their visual skills from the first months of life will help them learn now, as well as later in school. Because bubbles are both attention-grabbing and slow-moving, they are a great way to help your little one learn to use their eyes and develop those skills.
For young children, bubbles are fun tummy time, and every happy time helps development! In this position, the bubbles also encourage head turning—right, left, up, and down—movements that are necessary to control the primitive reflexes so important for future fluid, coordinated movement and learning.
