YOU WILL NEED:Soap foam is so easy to whip up and all you need is common household supplies!
- 1.5 cups water
- ¼ cup of dish soap
- Lots of food coloring
- Large bowl
- Electric Beaters
HOW TO MAKE SOAP FOAMSTEP 1: First mix water, soap, and food coloring gently in the bowl so it combines. You are going to need extra food coloring even though it may appear quite dark at first. I could have added more here! STEP 2: Then grab the beaters and on high, with the bowl tipped, mix until you get bubbles going. Beat for 2 mins to get really tight bubbles! STEP 3: Transfer foam to a play tray. STEP 4: Make more colors if desired. Mixing Tip: The tighter the bubbles, the longer play will last but you can re-whip the soap foam!

HOW TO CLEAN UP SOAP FOAMThis sensory foam is perfect for an afternoon of play! You can lay down a shower curtain or tablecloth under the container to minimize bubbles everywhere! If it’s a nice day, take it outside and it won’t matter if you get bubbles everywhere. What about the bathtub? Wouldn’t this bubbly foam be fun to add (do not try to make in the tub because electricity and water do NOT mix) When you are done with your soap foam, wash it down the drain!
