Giant Bubble

Who doesn’t love bubbles? Well how about a bubble you can stand in?! 

I did have to convince Ayla she wouldn’t float away but after she knew she was safe she was happy to be in a bubble! 

Suitable for: 3 years+
Set up: 10 minutes


  • Warm water
  • A good squirt of washing up liquid
  • Tuff tray 
  • Hula Hoop

The set up

Pour warm water into the tuff tray so that it fills about half way up the tray, squeeze a good amount washing up liquid into the water and gently mix it in being careful not to make to many bubbles. Use a small bubble wand and see if the mixture is strong enough to blow a bubble, if it isn’t add some more washing up liquid. When you are ready pop the hula hoop into the tuff tray and stand your little one in the middle of the hula hoop. Pull the hoop up quickly and watch the bubble form! 

You probably want to do this one outside because your little ones feet might be a bit slippery and do it on a fairly wind free day so that the wind doesn’t pop the bubble.

Making the Most out of the activity 

I didn’t ask to many questions with this one we just explored the bubbles together and Ayla went back to it several times. Ayla was very impressed that she could be in a bubble!!
