Want to explore sensory play with your kids but not quite sure about the mess? Then this Alphabet Beads Soap Foam Sensory Bin is for you! Quick and simple to make and extremely easy to clean up, soap foam is definitely one of our favs!
Earlier this month my kiddos got some Alphabet Beads off of Amazon and we have been loving playing with them! They have been so easy to slip into all sorts of play from ABC Edible Slime to an Alphabet Sensory Window – we love them!
How to Make ABC Soap Foam
- Unscented Soap
- Lime Kool-aide
- Green Tempera Powder
- Lower Case Alphabet Beads
1. Fill the bottom of a large bin with water. It doesn’t take much. We used about a 1/2 gallon for our tub and that was about the equivalent of an inch deep.
2. Add in 3-6tbsp. of soap and whisk. If you have a foaming soap dispenser you could also do it that way. I prefer to let my kids whisk it up, it is great for coordination and muscle building.
3. While whisking, add in lime kool-aide and green tempera powder until you reach a color and scent that fits your needs. We used two packets of powdered juice and 3 tbsp. of tempera powder.
4. Add in ABC beads and play!
My kids had a blast diving to the bottom of the soapy bin in search of the letters that sunk to the bottom – to them, it was sunken treasures!
It is a good idea to also provide some small plastic bowls when playing this with kids so that they can sort and identify the letters that they found!
