Foam Fun

I love how easy this is! All you need is 2 TBSP of dish soap, 1/4 cup of water, some food coloring, and a hand mixer! (If you need more you can always double or triple the recipe – the original amount I would say is good for 1 child in a small bin)

This is a great sensory activity for any time of the year, but I especially like it when I can coordinate it with something within the season (i.e. Valentine’s Day to make pink foam, St. Patrick’s Day to make green foam, etc.). 

Add 2 TBSP of dish soap to a bowl, pour in 1/4 cup of water, and add 1 drop of whatever food coloring you prefer (I always start with 1 drop and go from there because a little food coloring goes a long way!), and then beat it with the mixer until light, fluffy and foamy 🙂 

My kids love this activity, and they will literally play with this for at least an hour (the foam does start turning back into water after about 35 to 40 minutes, so you may need to blend it again – or it’s an easy way to say, “Activity is over!” 😉

Happy foaming! I hope your children enjoy it as much as mine do!
