Part 2 of sensory breathing activity.  Last post I demonstrated how to use a breathing technique to blow bubbles with water and dish detergent.  Today, I will show you how to blow pompoms through cardboard tubes.  This is a game for 2 people and is good for children 3 and up.

Blowing Pompoms Through Cardboard Tubes
- 2 cardboard tubes that can fit one inside the other.  If they are the same size, you can tape them together
- 2 straws
- holder for the cardboard tubes (optional)


Secure one tube inside the other

Ask partner, "Are you ready?"  Blow pompom through tube to partner.  They might have to try blowing a few times, until the pompom makes its way to the other side.

"I caught it!"


 Everyone practices!

Children will be amazed that the pompom disappears, then reappears.  They may want to experiment with more pompoms going through the tube.  See how many can fit before they get "stuck."
Have fun!
