There is NOTHING I hate more than seeing an great activity online and realizing I can’t do it ASAP because it needs really special supplies, or 5 hours to prep, or extra adult hands to put together…. AND THEN THERE IS HALLOWEEN BUBBLE FOAM:
The exact opposite.
This is the activity you can see and do. See and Do – this may be a new genre of activities for us.

- Bubble bath/body wash/head to toe style TEAR FREE soap
- Optional: food coloring (I used this color for “witchy lime”)
- Random kitchen utensils
- Random Halloween supplies (like these)
There’s a basic recipe for making bubble foam (Halloween bubble foam or regular, of course):
Combine 2 to 1 ratio of tear-free soap to water (water mixed with food coloring if desired – I went with green for Halloween witch reasons).
Mix with a hand mixer, blender, and stand mixer until “stiff peaks” form.
I put all my bubble foam into a sensory bin (I used my BELOVED 28 qt sensory bin (affiliate link). I used 1 cup of bubble bath and 1/2 cup of water.
Next, I set in a few Halloween trinkets (cauldrons and eye balls mostly) and kitchen utensils. And that was it: the Halloween bubble foam was officially ready.
Bubble foam is the ultimate sensory moment – we just love it
There’s something magical about bubble foam.
It’s messy – but clean messy.
It’s sensory – but isn’t wildly complicated.
It’s perfection for kids – but doesn’t need tons of supplies.
Bubble foam is quite literally the best.
I get it! This activity can look a little intimidating – it doesn’t have to be. Remember, it’s just soap and waters… fancy bubbles.
Here are some ideas for where to play with bubble foam:
This doesn’t have to be an indoor activity or a kitchen floor activity. It’s fantastic outside. It’s fantastic in a bathroom.
- The food coloring for this activity is HEAVILY diluted by the water.
- Food coloring is water soluble and will eventually rinse clean.
Even if you get concentrated food coloring on a white shirt, just leave it in cold water for an entire day. It’ll all seep out.
Halloween bubble foam is perfect for the season
Making a spooky fun “witchy” bubble foam was perfection for my kiddo.
I sure hope it’s a hit for yours!
