Making Halloween soap foam for toddlers is a great sensory play idea for a quick Halloween Activity you can whip up with household items you already have around!
You can learn all about how to make foam here – including a bubble foam recipe, tips for troubleshooting and coloring your foam, and the benefits of bubble foam sensory play for kids!
Halloween Soap Foam Activity Supplies:
- Food coloring
- Soap (or tear free bubble bath)
- Hand mixer
- Halloween themed items (bones, eyes, spiders, etc.)
Start by thinking about where you want to do this activity. You can do it at the kitchen counter, outside, or even in the bathtub!
If you're doing it in the bathtub, just make it there, versus making it and transferring it.
Making foam is super easy, here's the full tutorial on how to make bubble foam – including how to add color for the most vibrant soap foam!
With that said, making foam is basically two parts water to one part soap or bubble bath. You'll mix the solution with a hand mixer until the water is dissolved.
Add in your Halloween themed items and let your toddler have some fun!
Clean up and set up time:
This takes about 2 minutes to set up since you just need to mix the baby soap and water then add in the Halloween themed items.
Clean up time varies depending on where you did this activity. But the foam is lightweight and won't create pools of water around your home. Even so, you may want to do this activity outside or in the bathtub for the easiest clean up. However it really only takes like 2 minutes to clean up (just wipe down the area you did this sensory learning activity in!).
If you do this activity with your kids, I'd LOVE to see it! Feel free to tag me on Instagram @theconfusedmillennial!
