12 Educational Ways to Use Popping Fidget Toys

Poping toys are becoming very popular among kids of all ages across the country. Whether you call it a Pop It, a popping fidget toy, a push bubble, or a fidget popper, the names may vary but the fun is the same. This sensory toy has little ‘bubbles’ that you can push through and ‘pop’, just like a bubble wrap! These toys are available in a huge variety of colors and shapes.
Here are some educational ways to use Popping Fidget Toys

  1. COUNT and POP
    Actually it’s a combo of 3 activities-
    -RECOGNISE,
    -MATCH,
    -COUNT and POP.
    All in one activity for maximum skills development and to increace enggagement time as well. Firstly , the kid has to identify the alphabets from the flash cards. Secondly, Match it with the coded sheet. Count the dot numbers placed infront of that alphabet and lastly pop the same numbers. Like Alphabet A has 3 dots so the child has to pop bubbles for three times.
  1. POP the Fun
    POP with Baking Soda science
    A little baking soda and vinegar can open the whole world of fun to tiny scientists. For extra fun we have added few drops of food coloring to each compartment. But the real fun is to watch the baking soda fizz and froth in a chemical reaction.

3. POP with Rice
This is a sensory activity in which kids has to fill each pop bubble with rice and then pop from the other side. Poping from another side will spill the rice forming a quick small colorful fountain. My child was so surprised when we did it for the first time. It’s a little messy but full of fun!

  1. Number Recognition
    Roll the dice and then push that many bubbles on the Pop It. A great number recognition activity for early learning. You can add more fun by using flash cards . Ask your child to recognise the number on the FC and then pop accordingly.

5. Pop It Game
This is a great game to increase concentration in kids. We played this game in pairs. Each pair will have to push the bubble to the fidget toy. The second player has to pops down as many ‘bubbles’ as the first player poped that to in the specific time we used the sand watch to calculate time.

6. Pom-Pom Match
These Pop It toys come in very attractive colors. To increase the fun and build some color recognization skills we played with pom-pom and colorful beads. Using tongs or clothespins, my son needs to pick up pom-poms and fill up every bubble of the toy. The opening and closing of tongs/clothespins gives strength to different muscles and also in developing fine motor skills.

7. Identify and Pop
This activity will increase attention span in kids and improve eye-hand coordination. I simply traced out all the circles on paper and colored them in random sequence. My Child has to refer to this sheet to know which
bubbles to pop!

8. Practicing Phonics Sounds
Learning phonics is very important for early reading. So I just wrote alphabet (upper and lower case) and called out the sound of each alphabet individually and my child has to pop that letter.

9. Colour Pop
Recognize the color and Pop as many bubbles as mentioned in the card. Again I have made some DIY cards for this activity. It will build a number picture in my child’s mind and will mold him to pop that number.

10. Follow the Pattern
Playing with the Pop It toy becomes more interesting if we add a sequence to it. I have created certain patterns on plain paper and my son has to follow the same pattern. This is like a brain warm-up and the best activity to mold a kid’s brain in the right direction.

11. POP with both Hands
Get the children to pop the outermost lines of the pop it toy from the index finger of both hands at the same time this will help them to engage both sides of their brain at one go.

12. Memory Game
I collected small items like buttons, beads, pompom, that easily fits inside the bubbles of pop it toy. Placed it at a random pattern and gave my son a few minutes to see all the objects and their placing. Then I covered the toy with a cloth. My kid has to tell me what all was in the toy and at which place. Kids are blessed with strong memory power. We just have to work on increasing their attention span.

We totally loved this toy because of its versatile ways of playing. And the best part is it’s very inexpensive and easily available.

Hope you liked these simple and fun-loving activities. We’d love to hear from you!
Bye Bye!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content
    I’ve either written myself or outsourced

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
