Written by: Jantje Blokhuis-Mulder [Jantje is one of the creators of KinderArt]

Age:

2-5 years

Activity Summary:

This is a good exercise in texture and it's a good time to discuss the difference between solids and liquids.

What You Need:

•1 cup of soap flakes
•2 gallons of warm water
•A very large container ( a large plastic storage container is good)
•A warm day (this is a good outside activity)
•Egg beaters
•Ice cream scoops
•Strainers
•Funnels
•Old shirts or plastic garbage bags for the kids to wear to keep clean and dry.

What You Do:

  • Dissolve the soap flakes in 2 gallons of warm water.
  • Beat with an egg beater until the container is full of foam.
  • Let the children play in the foam with their hands.
  • Children can scoop, strain and pour the foam through their fingers and funnels and anything else you can find.
  • This is a good exercise in texture and it's a good time to discuss the difference between solids (the strainer, the funnel, sponges) and liquids (the soapy water).
