Watermelon Soap Foam Sensory Play

My kids love playing with soap foam lately, especially my three year old. He went crazy for it while we did activities for the new book Pop! Squirt! Splash! Our latest sensory bin with soap foam was this watermelon inspired soap foam. It was so pink and so messy and oh so fun. The only thing missing was the rind, as my five year old pointed out by asking, "Where's the green part?"

For this watermelon soap foam sensory activity, I used:


To make soap foam, combine liquid soap with a splash of water and mix with a hand blender, electric mixer, or stand mixer until you make a frothy foam. Alternatively, you can just use a foaming hand soap dispenser to make soap foam and that's actually the method we use lately because it's a great way to work on fine motor skills!

Add red liquid watercolors to the soap foam. Or if you'd like to try watermelon scented, then add some watermelon Jell-O powder to the soap foam. Once the soap foam is nice and pink, add the black "watermelon seeds."

The boys loved to pick out all of the watermelon seeds although they often ended up buried in the soap foam. It was sort of like being on a treasure hunt for watermelon seeds.

Once they picked out all the seeds, they counted them and washed them off in a bucket of clean water.
