Cinnamon scented soap foam sensory play recipe and instructions on how to make soap foam for toddlers.

Of all the soap foam sensory bins that we have made and played with, I think my favorite may be this cinnamon soap foam. 

Not only does this sensory bin smell amazing, but the cinnamon gives the soap foam a really unique texture and look. It almost looks like sand, making it a great sensory bin filler for construction themed sensory bins. 

And like all of our soap foam sensory play activities, this one's easy to make too!

Easy Sensory Play Idea: How to Make Cinnamon Scented Soap Foam

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

  • Liquid hand soap or foaming soap
  • Cinnamon
To make this soap foam recipe, combine liquid hand soap, a splash of water, and a generous amount of cinnamon and mix thoroughly using a hand mixer, electric mixer, or stand mixer. 

Alternatively, you can use a foaming hand soap dispenser to make soap foam and then add the cinnamon afterwards.

Cinnamon soap foam ends up looking like fluffy dirt or sand, so I paired it with some tractors and a construction truck. I really think that this soap foam would be a great base for a construction themed sensory bin.

My boys enjoyed the addition of tractors to the sensory bin. They loved driving the tractors through the soap foam and "washing" the tractors with the soap foam.

Here's an easy clean up tip: keep a bucket of clean water and a towel handy so that kids can clean their hands (or toys!) along the way. 

I also like to use a shower curtain underneath all of our sensory bins to help contain the mess. Then you can toss the shower curtain into the washing machine for easy clean up!
