A bubble blowing sensory table was my perfect answer for my bubble dilemmas! Children love to blow and blow and blow bubbles, and you can let them do it to their heart’s content with a sensory table! Several children can blow bubbles at once and make a huge bubble mountain! Plus, it’s so much fun!

The best part? It’s only 2 ingredients! Water and dish soap! No bubble solution needed, although you could definitely use bubble solution.
Make a Bubble Sensory Table
Make a run to your kitchen for all of these ingredients:
- Dish soap or any other liquid soap
- Straws (plastic work best)
- Cups or bowls
- Liquid Watercolor (optional)
We made our bubble blowing sensory table in our (very loved) outdoor sensory table. You can use any sort of sensory table or sand and water table
You are going to put about a cup (8 ounces) of water into each cup or bowl with a squeeze of soap in that. I use between a teaspoon to a tablespoon. Then we keep the soap handy for lots of refills.
The entire reason for using cups and bowls is to keep the process more sanitary. Each child uses his or her own container (in theory) for the process!
Just add a straw and let the children blow!!
You might be asking: “What about the children who will try to suck up the bubble solution instead of blowing out?” And I would say, “how smart of you to think of that!”
The perfect solution to this is to cut a small triangle on the side of the straw about an inch or two from the bottom of the straw. Voila! Problem fixed!
This bubble blowing sensory table is just so much fun and so easy to set it up! Try it when every child wants bubbles at the same time or when you need a perfect sensory table to entertain the children with.

Hi! I stumbled onto this post for a bubble sensory table, but when I went to the link to make no suck straws, the website no longer works. Do you recall how to make no suck straws?
