Brief description: Chimpanzees may enjoy catching bubbles as a novel enrichment. They also enjoy playing in mounds of soap

Materials: Soap and bubble wand/bubblemaker or plant based food grade dish soap. Always use non-toxic soap.

Assembly instructions: No assembly required

How to use: Either manually blow bubbles towards the primate’s enclosure or set up a bubble machine to do the work for you. Another option is to set out buckets or pools and add a little food grade dish soap to them. Using the water pressure from a hose you can create a bucket of suds to place in the enclosure for the primates to play in.

Cost: Bottles of bubbles can be purchased at the dollar store (wand included) and bubble machines can be purchased either online or from your local retail store ($10+). Dish soap can be purchased online or at your local retail store ($5+).

Foxie and a mouthful of non-toxic, plant based soap.
