Immediately the Dish Soap Foam from Hand On: As We Grow jumped out at me and I knew what we were going to do today.
This was super easy and oh so much fun! All I did was squirt a bit of dish soap in my food processor, added some water, turned it on, and let the foam form. The longer you run your food processor, the better the foam.
I wanted to make a bunch, so I used my blender too. I found that the food processor makes a thicker foam and I liked it much better than the blender.
I made several batches, enough to cover the bottom of my big plastic box. I made one batch of pink and one batch of blue, using food coloring, to make it a bit more fun.
I added a cup, paint brush, and a few transportation sponges to enhance the play some.
J was a little apprehensive at first…remember, he doesn’t like getting stuff on his hands.
After a bit, he warmed up to it and got totally immersed in he play.
He dumped some more water in the tub using the cup, he stirred with the paintbrush, but he loved the sponges the most. They absorbed a lot and became super squishy!
My windows even got washed!
This was an absolutely fantastic activity. I think we’ll be doing this a bunch this summer. The bubble-foam had such a great texture.
Plus, my food processor and blender got a good wash too!
I share even more fun ideas there.
