Snap, Crackle, POP!

Help your child learn about cause and effect with this fun bubble wrap experiment. Since his fingers may not be strong enough to do the popping (and because dancing on the wrap is just more fun!) securely tape some bubble wrap to a hard floor and let him walk or jump all over it. He’ll quickly learn about cause (the jump) and effect (the popping sound).
