When I saw this activity at http://www.funathomewithkids.com/2013/08/rainbow-soap-foam-bubbles-sensory-play.html?m=1. I knew it would be a hit. We have made foamy soap before but it was with shredded ivory soap. This recipe is much easier! Just mix 2 tbsp Dawn dish detergent with 1/4 cup water. Turn on the mixer and whip it up.
My little one adding the food coloring and started mixing. She loved just stirring it up and spreading it all over her hands. She added some small toys to the mix to hide and find them. This was loads of fun and my three year old preferred it to shaving cream for sure.
