This month's low energy play comes from a pin from Fun At Home With Kids. This one seemed like it be more work than I was looking for, but actually turned out to be pretty simple. All you need is washing up liquid, a whisk (preferably electric) and food colouring.
I put two tablespoons of washing up liquid into a bowl and then added a splash of water and a couple of drops of food colouring. Then I set the electric whisk on the fastest setting and kept it going until the bowl was full of bubbly foam. It needed two or three minutes and it took me a couple attempts to get a proper foam - it needs to form peaks that hold on their own, a bit like a meringue.
I poured each colour foam into a tray and then set it outside for Little J to have a go. As we don't do much messy play anymore he was a bit cautious at getting stuck in, I think if Miss H had been around he would have been more confident so it will be one to try again with both of them.
He loved it when I brought out his new car toys and a jug of water, so he could give them a rainbow bath and clean them off.
I even got chance to sit and have a cup of tea whilst he played, which is the measure of a good play session for me!
Next time I would use even more washing up liquid to create lots more bubbles for even more bubbly fun!
