How to Create Valentine’s Day 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 dish soap solution. But you can also use bubble solution or bubble bath.
How to Make Bubble Foam
- In a large bowl or a stand mixer combine 1/4 cup of water and 4 teaspoons of bubble bath. General rule of thumb is 2 water to 1 bubble bath. The more bubble bath you add the more bubbles you will get.
- Use your stand mixer or hand blender to quickly whip up thick frothy bubbles. You can also use a regular whisk to make the bubbles.
You can also add a few drops rose water or rose essential oil to give it an another add sensory dimension!
Then I added a bunch of acrylic red and pink rose petals and kitchen tools like spoons, slotted spoons, soup laden, bowls, strainers and let my little kids loose!
This simple bubble foam sensory bin was such a hit with my kids! But the best part of this activity is that it was simple to create and easy to clean up!
By the end of this activity my kids were washing the walls and the windows. I let them do it! It was super easy to clean with a dish towel and they had a blast!
