Oscar is a big fan of messy play and sensory activities and loves nothing more than covering himself in whatever we have been playing with; homemade paint, jelly and our latest messy play ingredient; homemade foam!
The foam is really quick to make and gave Oscar loads of entertainment from playing with his under the sea animals in it to covering himself in green foam! But as its only washing up liquid, a quick shower after playing easily removed all the foam from Oscar’s body.
You can use just the foam in the sensory box as its just as much fun on its own, you could even make a variety of colours of it or you could add some plastic toys such as animals and toy people or some kitchen utensils like spoons and bowls. The possibilities are endless! Quick to make and lots of fun to play with!
What you need:
1/3 cup washing up liquid (we used Fairy Liquid)
1 tbsp cornstarch
How to make it:
- Mix 1/3 cup water with 1/3 cup washing up liquid.
- Add your desired food colouring along with the cornstarch.
- Mix in a blender for about 3 minutes.
- Pour out of blender into a plastic box ready for playing.
