Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. Precise spheres of beautiful colours that swirl and shimmer herald Spring to our garden. Squeals of delight ring through the air. In keeping with the spirit of free play, I set up the bubble machine and took myself to the sidelines of the garden and simply observed my children N, M and E in the foray of bubbles.
N & M armed themselves with water spray bottles. E with a plastic spoon. Air trapped in fragile, microscopically thin film of water didn’t stand a chance if they floated within reach of these three young boys.
It would have been good if I had thought of using the water spray bottles as part of the bubble popping frenzy. I could have written a wonderful play blog with a well sound rationale behind the use of such implements in play. This, is better. Because they had space to play, my three year old twin boys used their creativity, and I appreciate the creativity shown.
This play idea is brought to you by two three year old boys.
