Have you heard of bubble foam yet? It’s super easy to make and provides hours of entertainment! Bubble foam is great for sensory play and fun times for your toddler or kids.

What you need:

Alright, so the secret ingredient is cornstarch! We got the idea from making homemade bubble solution- when you add cornstarch to homemade bubbles, the bubbles are harder to pop!

Grab a giant mixing bowl or pot and add the cornstarch and water.

Mix the water and cornstarch till there’s no more stick clumps.

Next, add the soap and food coloring! Give it a stir.

Now use your hand mixer and beat the s*** out of it for 2 full minutes until stiff peaks form! (think whipping cream)

We made two colors but feel free to stick with one! Or if you’re feeling ambitious, go ahead and make the rainbow!

Add in any toys that are okay going into the food colored bubbles (ie; no dolls with blonde hair unless you’d like them to have colored hair!)

We used:

  • plastic dolls
  • My Little Ponies
  • cars and trucks
  • dinosaurs
  • random plasticky things!
