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. You can also check out this list of 21 toddler activities for some other fun ideas!
If you’ve ever wondered how you can stay home with your kids- you might wanna check out this post.
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!)
- plastic dolls
- My Little Ponies
- cars and trucks
- random plasticky things!
RECIPE AND INSTRUCTIONS:
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/4 cornstarch
- 1/3 tear free soap
- food coloring
- Mix the water and cornstarch together until no lumps remain and it’s smooth.
- Add soap and food coloring, stir.
- Beat on high with a hand mixer for about 2 full minutes or until it starts getting ‘stiff.’
- Dump into a giant bin and add the toys of your choice!

Hey I love this! But I have a question. Would it last overnight? If I made it the night before and used it the next day would that work?

Unfortunately, I don't think it would. You might be able to whip it again the next day though, to create the foam. I haven't tested this. Good luck!
