I saw this activity for foamy soap painting a while back and knew it would be perfect for Little M. It could potentially be a BIG mess (even a little messy for me!?!) so I wanted to be sure I was really prepared. See the post that got me so excited here.
what you need: foaming soap ~ paint ~ buckets ~ paint brushes ~ stuff to paint
When I said I wanted to be prepared I was not kidding. I put our playmat on the grass, a smock on Little M and put a bucket of clean water with a towel close by.
Little M filled the cup with foaming soap. (Don’t you just love the look of concentration?) Then we added a few squirts of paint and mixed. I ended up adding about twice as much soap as we started with.
Little M was happy to jump right in. I used blue, yellow, and red so that she could mix the colors. Notice the lids? I don’t usually use lids because she loves mixing colors so much. I wanted her to keep them separate in the containers and mix on the boards for this one.
Foamy Soap Painting ended up being even cooler than I had expected. The added bonus? Clean up was breeze. I guess the soap made the paint “clean”.
