Bubbles are fun for kids of all ages - and soccer is an activity that is really gaining popularity. Soccer Star Leo Messi developed FootBubbles, a special blower and socks that allow kids to do tricks with their feet. It's non-toxic, and provides a fun way to improve coordination and get moving.
I had a chance to try out the bubbles. It was a little tricky because we've only had one day warm enough to try it, but it wasn't hard to get the hang of. The idea of kicking bubbles around is really fun. The concept is simple enough that my six-year-old could do it, and my eight-year-old could enjoy trying different ways to kick and balance with the bubbles. I was surprised that it actually worked - it wasn't perfect, and it will take us a lot of practice to really get the hang of the tricks, but it'll be something fun for when the weather warms up again!
