What you need for the Flower Garden Soap Foam recipe
In all reality, you don’t need a ton of ingredients! Just a few simple items and you’ll be creating and playing in no time at all! Our go-to soap foam recipe is:
- 1/4 cup of warm water
- 2 tbsp dish soap
- 2 tbsp cornstarch (0r corn flour)
- red and green food coloring or liquid watercolors
- blender (or hand mixer)
- plastic flowers (you can alternatively use silk flowers, but this set of plastic flowers is really cute)
How to make homemade soap foam
Get ready to get messy and in a good way! Put on some old clothes and just know going into it that everyone is going to be covered in soap foam!
Add the water, dish soap, corn starch and food coloring to a blender. We made two separate batches, one red and one green to mix together for the dirt of our flower garden.
Blend all the ingredients on the highest speed possible, and the foam will thicken up quickly. If the soap foam is still watery, add more cornstarch and dish soap; if too thick, add a bit more water.
This recipe might need some adjusting depending on the blender, adding more corn starch usually helps though.
See the video below that we did LIVE on Facebook to troubleshoot some of these issues!
What items can you add to a homemade soap foam sensory bin?
Anything that you’d like! Since ours was a flower garden theme, we added flowers and Spring-like items. But if you wanted to add in other items, it’s totally up to you!
We have previously made ocean soap foam, unicorn soap foam, and even witch’s brew soap foam!
Will the colors of the soap foam wash out of clothes and hands?
They should, but I always recommend wearing old clothes just in case! You never know what can happen so why take the chance? Hands might be colored a bit from food coloring, but will eventually wash out 🙂
As a quick tip, white shaving cream rubbed on food coloring hands will take much of the color off! And, it’s even more sensory fun with shaving cream!
And there you have it! This activity is one that will provide hours upon hours of play! Give them a spatula to have as well so they can continue mixing it up as they go! Observe some color mixing play as the red and the green mix together to make a brownish, dirt color.
