How to Make Bouncing Bubbles That Won’t Pop for Sensory Play

Do your kids love sensory play activities as much as mine? Sensory play is a great way to keep children amused, and it also plays an important role in their development.

We’ve done so many fun sensory play activities! We’ve had fun making rainbow slime and blowing bubbles in slime. And speaking of bubbles, that brings me to today’s fun project!

My kids love blowing bubbles. They like to challenge themselves to see how large they can get the bubbles before they pop—which of course is always too soon. So I was thrilled when I found an activity I knew would thrill them—and that is making bouncing bubbles that won’t pop right away!

Here’s our exclusive video tutorial!
