Kool-aid FOAM

There are not words for how fun this playtime was, and so simple! Activities like these really are my absolute favorite!

Kool-aid FOAM

Rosie and Jewel loved playing with Kool-aid bubbles, and they also love soap foam, so we combined the two concepts to create this amazing Kool-aid FOAM! This foam was gloriously scented, delightfully fluffy, and irresistibly squishy.... and the best part is that you can most likely go into your kitchen and make it right now!

Kool-aid FOAM Recipe (affiliate links provided)

  • In a large bowl combine 1/4 cups of water with a hefty squirt of dish soap (no need to measure). Add one Kool-aid packet and mix on high for 1-3 minutes using an electric mixer. The longer you mix the fluffier the foam will become

  • We also added a few drops of washable watercolors so that our foam would be vibrantly colored, but this isn't necessary. Make sure you use a large enough bowl, because the soap foam rises up a lot during the mixing process. I bought four large bowls at the Dollar Tree and mixed four different colors of Kool-aid foam side by side at the same time. Once the foams were super fluffy I spooned them into our sensory bin and set the girls loose

Doesn't this look so FUN & irresistible to touch?

Both girls had such great fun playing with the fluffy, colorful, & delightfully squishy foam

It smelled AMAZING, too!

And the girls found so many ways to play! They squished and mixed and cooked and blended. They formed foamy mountains, made colorful soap pies, and gave their ponies a bath. It is amazing the fun they had with this simple recipe for play, and once playtime was over the whole house smelled amazing!

A Few Tips: We used washable liquid watercolors to add extra color to our foam, and that worked great. If you don't have washable watercolors and would like to purchase them you can get them online here. You could also use food coloring, but it will stain the skin during play. However, it will easily come off in the bath, especially if you let kids play in the water for a bit.
