Every time they see the copy of our book, they flip to the page with chocolate soap foam and ask to make it. And seriously, this chocolate soap foam is as decadent and velvety as it looks and sounds. It smells so amazing...almost good enough to eat, but don't, it's soap. Ready to dip your hands into this chocolate scented soap foam sensory activity?

How to Make Chocolate Soap Foam

Here's what you'll need to make chocolate soap foam:

To make chocolate soap foam, use an electric hand mixer or stand mixer to mix a generous amount of liquid hand soap with a splash of water and a teaspoon of cocoa powder. The amount of cocoa powder you use will depend on the volume of soap foam that you are mixing. Simply mix it until it is foamy and bubbly. Alternatively, you can use a foaming hand soap dispenser to quickly make soap foam while letting the kids work on fine motor skills by pumping the soap dispenser.

We actually made chocolate almond soap foam since we used almond scented castile soap in this sensory bin. And geez, did it ever smell divine! No wonder my kids keep requesting this activity. It's a sensory delight both for the tactile input and the olfactory input.

Messy Sensory Play Tips

Some final tips to contain messy sensory play activities like this one:
