This is a wonderful game for parents and caregivers to play with children, especially those who need help harnessing their unbounded energy. Not only is it a fun activity to play because most young children just LOVE to pop bubbles— but it helps develop their impulse control and build patience!

Though everyone develops at a different pace, children can begin to learn impulse control as early as age 3 years. For some children, impulse control and patience is an ongoing struggle, which is why this Bubble Game is such a great activity for you to play with kids so they can practice these imperative life skills that will serve as they grow.

Pro Tip: You can play the Bubble Game at any time and any place. If you are worried about bubbles landing on your floor or carpet, however, we suggest playing outside.
