Autism and Blowing Bubbles: The Bubble Song

Blowing bubbles is a fantastic sensory activity for children with autism. Using the wand for blowing and their fingers for popping enhances fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. When blowing bubbles with a parent or friend, a child learns about taking turns, working together, and communicating. Here's a fun song to sing when blowing and popping bubbles with your child:


The Bubble Song (tune: There's a Spider on the Floor)

There are bubbles in the air, in the air (clap twice).
There are bubbles in the air, in the air (clap twice).
There are bubbles in the air. There are bubbles everywhere.
There are bubbles in the air, in the air (clap twice).
There are bubbles way up high, way up high (clap twice).
There are bubbles way up high, way up high (clap twice).
There are bubbles way up high. There are bubbles in the sky.
There are bubbles up high, way up high (clap twice).
    There are bubbles way down low, way down low (clap twice).
    There are bubbles way down low, way down low (clap twice).
    There are bubbles way down low. There are bubbles at your toes.
    There are bubbles way down low, way down low (clap twice).


Don't waste your money on trendy children's music. Stick with the tried-and-true. Many parents today loved Raffi when they were kids and now enjoy him all over again as parents. Every song on this CD is a classic, including Spider on the Floor, Mr. Sun, and Shake My Sillies Out. Dance with them at home or groove to them in your car.
