Dish Soap Foam

toddler 2 (5)

Travis loves bubbles and he loves when he can touch them, so I was very eager to try out this neat trick from Hands on As We Grow. Just a bit of water in the bottom of your food processor, followed by a few squirts of dish detergent whips up into a thick, foamy substance. Think closer to a shaving cream than to the foamy bubbles you see while washing dishes.

I whirled up the mixture and set Travis up with scoops (an ice cream scoop worked particularly well here), ladles, and various other utensils.

He took to it, but was not as interested in feeling the mixture as I thought he would be, aside from clapping his hands together a few times to make bubbles fly, and declaring that the mixture was “sticky.”

Remarkably, he lost interest very fast, I think because the loud sound of the food processor scared him during preparation! When I asked him if he wanted me to give it a second whirl to make it thick and foamy again, he said/signed “all done” and moved on to other toys.
