  • Add ½ cup of water. color foam for kids

  • Add food coloring of your choice (optional but recommended)how to make soap foam

  • Close your blender and start making Soap Foam!


It took about 15 seconds for the foam to appear. Once it was almost to the top of the blender, I stopped it.

Open your blender. Scoop it out and pour it into your ketchup squeeze bottles.

I used a funnel to make it easier for the foam to enter the bottles. If it works better for you like this, I definitely recommend it! 


Once your bottles are all ready to go with foam in them, take them outside for some fun outdoor play! 


Squeeze them on the pavement or sidewalk for some color foam fun!

We had a wonderful time playing with our foam soap outside. We made a rainbow, mixed colors and added all of the colors together.

Tips and Tricks I found through trial and error that may be of help to you:

  • As soon as your done inserting your soap foam into bottles, make sure to use them ASAP. The foam turns into liquid which can easily be reversed by just a simple shake. But, definitely use them immediately. 

  • I found cutting the tips of the ketchup bottles worked well in allowing the foam to slide out. It was easier to create something and I highly recommend doing this. 

  • If more liquid than foam is coming out, shake the bottle. This will help make it foamy again. 

Hope you give this activity a try and your kids love it as much as my girls did!
