How to Create Autumn Bubble Foam Sensory Bin
Have you made bubble foam for your toddler or preschooler? It really can be a game changer. I introduced my twin toddlers to bubble foam and ever since then they have asked for it almost everyday!
There are a few way to make bubble foam. In this activity I used bubble solution. But you can also use dish soap or bubble bath.
I poured the bubble solution into my IKEA FLisat sensory table and then used my garden hose to create the bubbles. If you aren’t doing this activity outside a great way to get thick foamy bubbles is to use your hand blender.
Pour the bubble solution or dish soap into your sensory bin and add a small amount of water and use your hand blender to create the bubbles.
Then I added a bunch of acrylic leaves and kitchen tools like spoons, slotted spoons, soup laden and strainers and let my little toddler loose!
This simple bubble foam sensory bin was such a hit with my toddlers! But the best part of this activity is that it was simple to create and easy to clean up!
