Of all the soap foams 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. Cinnamon soap foam also makes a great sensory bin filler for construction themed sensory bins. It's easy to make too!

Cinnamon soap foam is really easy to make. Here's what you'll need to make some of your own:


Make a bath of soap foam by combining liquid hand soap, a splash of water, and a generous amount of cinnamon 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.

Regardless, the addition of tractors to the sensory bin was thoroughly enjoyed by my boys. 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 toss the shower curtain into the washing machine for easy clean up!
