If you are a toddler mom, like me, I can bet that you go through A LOT of bubbles around your house. Toddlers are obsessed with bubbles and I’m totally cool with that because did you know that it’s physically impossible to cry when blowing bubbles? It’s true, try it. I picked up that fact in grad school during a play therapy class and never left my office without a container of bubbles. It also comes in handy for toddlers and their crazy tantrums. Step2 recently sent us their new Big Bubble Splash Water Table and it was an immediate hit with my 2 and 5 year old. The table comes with a battery powered bubble blower, wands, water cups and bubble solution. The bubble blower spits out air so kids just have to place their wand near it and it’ll blow bubbles. So awesome for kids that haven’t quite mastered their bubble blowing skills!

The Step2 bubble table comes with three awesome bubble wands, but we thought it’d be fun to create our own fancy wands out of pipe cleaners. This is a simple project that even toddlers can do with some assistance (and a watchful eye if you are using little beads). First, wrap the top of a pipe cleaner around a 1 inch circle cookie cutter. Make sure to leave about an inch slack at the end. Next, wrap that extra inch of pipe cleaner around the stem. Remove the cookie cutter and you’ll have a perfect circle. Your kids can help string the pipe cleaner with beads. Once they reach the bottom, fold the end of the pipe cleaner so the beads can’t escape. Dip your new bubble wands in the Step2 bubble table and start blowing!

What’s bubble blowing without some funny bubble blowing faces! Here are some of our bubble blowing outtakes. The one where Logan is crossing his eyes cracks me up! Once my kiddos grew tired of bubble blowing, I loved that they could use the bubble table also as a water table. You could also use the table as an indoor sensory table during snowy winter months (or hot summer months if you live in Arizona like us). I can see this table getting a lot of use, even more so than a typical water table. As far as assembly goes, it was just a few screws and the kids were happily playing within 15 minutes. Word to the wise, pick up a package of AAA batteries with the table. You’ll need four for the blowing machine. So fun and in my opinion, one of Step2’s best toys yet!
