Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles of Colours.

We have always loved getting messy so when a good friend of mine sent me 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids by Asia Citro it didn't take long for all four of us to pick out activities we wanted to try.

We have always been a fan of bubbles and sometime ago Miss 2 and I had fun squeezing a sponge in some dish washing detergent

So we thought we would take our bubbles to a whole new level and it was so simple!

Soap Foam from 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids by Asia Citro
  • Put two tbsp dish washing detergent in a bowl
  • Add 1/4 cup of water
  • Add colouring of your choice, we used some powdered paint, Asia uses liquid water colours or food colouring.
  • Beat with an electric whisk or beater
We loved how the foam could be moulded, poured and put into things like cup cake moulds.

 How the colours could be added to each other and stay seperate or be mixed

How it felt in our hands.

And that it wasn't just for hand.

 One little tip we have if using a hand held electric whisk pop the bowl your in your sink. As we had a high edged bowl but we still managed to splatter our bench and wall with colour!

Thinking this book is going to be a gift for some people I know!
