Bubble Tumblers can help develop self-feeding skills
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff

One way to help kids develop good self-feeding skills is to offer play activities that build the fine motor skills needed when eating.
,A child playing with a No-Spill Bubble Tumbler is using the same motions that are needed handling cutlery. The motions mimic bringing food to the mouth, and by blowing bubbles, the child develops more controlled mouth movement.
,Plus, you get all those pretty bubbles!

You can't keep a good Skwish down! Encourage your child to press a Skwish flat. You say "Down" with a falling voice. When they let go and the Skwish bounces say "up!"
