Valentine’s Day Soapy Sensory Foam

VDay Soapy Sensory Foam (3)

Soapy sensory foam is an idea we first found at Hands on As We Grow when Travis was a toddler, and it’s one of those easy activities you can return to over and over. You can switch it up for just about any holiday simply by adding that season’s colors with food coloring. To wit, today Veronika and I turned the foam pink!

I added about 2 tablespoons of water and a squirt of dish soap to a blender, along with a few drops of red food coloring. Run the blender for just a moment and you’ll get a thick foam that’s ready for play!

I spooned the mixture onto a tray for Veronika and set out kitchen utensils such as a whisk, spoon, and a few measuring cups. Let the soapy, foamy bakery begin!

Veronika told me that she was adding cups of “flour” very seriously as she scooped the foam into a loaf pan.

She also loved using one measuring cup to fill another.

The whisk was great for stirring it around!

This activity kept her busy for quite a while. And while it looks like messy play, don’t forget that you literally just have soap in all those containers. It rinses off in a moment and everything is sparkly clean.
