Today we had rainbow foam for sensory play! :D
It's easy to set up and using items that can be found at home.
It is a fun activity for children to learn about colours recognition, mixing and observing colour changes, or just simply had fun during bath time covered in multi-coloured foam!
What you'll need:
- 2 tbsp of body shampoo
- 1/4 cup of water
- electric mixer
- food colouring
- mixing bowl (or small pail to prevent splatters!)
- a big tub
How to make it:
- Add body shampoo, food colouring and water into a bowl/pail
- Use an electric mixer on the highest possible setting for 1-2min (Your foam should be able to form stiff peaks that hold their shape.
- Scoop it out into your container and repeat necessary until you have the desired amount of foam.
You may have a fun showering activity with your child at home, especially for those who are rejecting showering routines :)
Alternatively, you can use the leftover foam for washing toilet floor too!
Have fun with rainbow foam! :)
To all tired parents:
"No matter how long the rain lasts, there will be a rainbow in the end. No matter how sad you may be, believe, that happiness is waiting."
Hang in there and remember you are not alone in this walk!
