Method
Add a few splashes of food colouring to several squirts of washing up liquid in a deep tub. We used a transparent tub which was fun to be able to watch the foam being created.

Add a little water (approx 1 cup) to the mix.
Whisk the mixture and watch as colourful foam is created in the tub.

Repeat the process with different colours of food colouring, creating several colours of foam in other tubs.

Scoop the different colours of colourful foam into a shallow tray and get stuck in with hands. Have fun mixing and playing with the rainbow foam.
