Cathy and Dominic 2Hi everyone! Today Cathy from Bountifulplate shares with us her very valuable review on bubble toys! Cathy is a homemaker/wife and a mother to a 10-year old son with Autism and ADHD, an 18-year old daughter who is a college freshman and a stepson who is 30. Originally from Maryland, she has lived in the Midwest for 13 years.

772821_2We took Dominic to a family camp several years ago. It was a wonderful place, but with him not being potty trained at the time and having limited speech, there were really no activities for him to participate in. He and I spent a lot of time in and around our cabin. The weather was spectacular the entire week we were at camp and we spent many, many hours outdoors. I was so glad that I had tucked a huge bottle of bubbles into our car at the last minute along with our suitcases, because we spent 95% of the week blowing bubbles!

An automatic bubble blower is great too, because it produces tons of bubbles with the flick of a switch, thus promoting fine motor skills. Dominic is fascinated with bubbles and wanted to go outside to blow some a 775051_1few days ago. Given that the temperature today is a “balmy” six degrees, I think we may need to wait until it gets just a little bit warmer here in Michigan!
