Sensory Bottle Top ‘Bubble’ Soup

Sensory Bubble Bottle Top Soup

Recently we shared here on Learning 4 Kids a Bottle Top Soup Game and Miss 4 absolutely loved it.  We extended the sensory play opportunity and by adding liquid soap to make our Sensory Bottle Top ‘Bubble’ Soup.

Children will love creating bubbles with a whisk and searching for the bottle tops as they disappear amongst the bubble foam.

What you will need?

You will need a large tub ¼ filled with water, approx. 40 bottle tops, a ladle, whisk plastic container, towel and shower gel (we used sensitive skin).

Sensory play for toddlers and kids - bubbles and bottle tops

Some Ideas:

  • Make bubbles by swishing the water around with your hands.
  • Make bubbles using the whisk. Which one makes the most bubbles?
  • Hide the bottle tops in the bubble and play search for the ‘red’ bottle tops. Continue with other colours.
  • Try scooping out the hiding bottle tops in the bubbles.
  • Balance the bottle tops on the edge of the container and fill them with bubbles.
