I love anything that is fast to set up and will occupy my daughter for at least 30 mins. This sensory activity is great because it keeps her nearby when I’m working in the kitchen. When she says “look, mom,” I’m right there to check out what she is up to! I have to admit I have spent a good amount of time playing in this foam too.
- A Sink.
- Liquid Dish Soap.
- Immersion Blender.
- Something To Play With.
Step by step instructions to create your messy play idea
There is no need to measure… just fill the bottom of your sink with enough water that you will be able to submerge your immersion blender. Add about a tablespoon of dish soap.
Then start blending!
It will foam up quickly! Just keep going until the sink is full. It doesn’t take long when you use it at high speed.
You can add color to the bubbles if you want. I have found that it doesn’t really matter too much if we do. Then add in some toys and play!
