For this round of soap foam play I used baby body wash. We used 1/4 cup of the soap and 5-6 tablespoons of water. (I found this soap needed a little more water than originally recommended.) We mixed the two ingredients on high speed in our stand mixer until the foam filled the bowl.
For the car wash set up I added in some old baby wash cloths, a scrubber, cut up sponges, and a few straight pieces of our race car tracks. In one bin I placed the soap foam, in a second bin I added some clean warm water for rinsing.
Both boys were interested immediately. I almost couldn't get any photos taken of the set up before they were in playing with the cars and foam.
They used the foam to wash the cars as they went though the track. Little Brother became engaged in putting the cars into the foam,
and then Big Brother would drive them down the track to be scrubbed and rinsed.
I love that Little Brother is starting to be more able to be involved in our play and finding activities that engage both of them at one time.
I'm also looking forward to discovering what other ways we can play with soap foam during the hot summer months!
