Today I wanted to bring you a really fun and easy parenting project that keeps kids busy for hours and can be used in a variety of ways: Rainbow Soap Foam. This project takes only 3 ingredients and you can customize to fit your particular needs. Whether you are picking rainbow colored foam or getting your holiday on with Halloween colors, this project is easy to make and easy to clean (after all- its main ingredient is soap!).
How to make rainbow soap foam bubbles
There are a lot of ways to use soap and incorporating soap and playtime together is just GOOD CLEAN FUN! (See what I did there?)
to get started on your own DIY colored soap foam fun, you will need:
- Palmolive Soap
- Food coloring
Because these ingredients are not that messy, this is a great one to have the kids participate in!
Add half a cup of cold water into your blender.
Then add 4 TBSP of Palmolive Soap (I used the Original Brand kind)
Put in some drops of food coloring.
You can choose to lower this recipe to 1/4th cp water and 2 TBSP of soap if you choose depending on your project.
Turn the blender on for approx 2 minutes.
The longer your soap mixes the more stiff the foam becomes so its easier to play with.
WOW! SOAP FOAM~! We made three colors, green, pink and orange.
Pour your colored soap into a sensory bin, paper plates, bowls or jars (as we did here).
You can even layer your foam!
Now you are asking me- what do I do with it?
Its fun to make designs on plates and practice scooping foam into bowls and measuring cups, but my kids decided to use it to have a fun car and horse wash. We took all our foam outside with water, spoons, and rags.
