We had so much fun with this easy to make play recipe.  We have used these same ingredients to make different recipes in the past, but by changing a few elements this play time was all anew.

How to Make GHOST FOAM

Ghost Foam is amazingly FUN.  It is squishy, it foams, and it's mold-able.  It is also naturally cold, which adds a really fun element to play.  Kids will love exploring fizzing science while they play with their ghost foam.

Ghost Foam Recipe
Method
Mix the baking soda and shaving foam in a sensory bin or container.  We used one large box of baking soda and one can of shaving foam, but you can use slightly varied amounts.  We slowly mixed our ingredients so that we could explore a variety of textures, and this combination of materials is fun with more or less of each, too.  We wanted our ghost foam to be more foamy than dough-like.  If you want to make more of a dough just use more baking soda and a touch less shaving cream

Once we had the mixture we liked for this activity I gave Rosie black craft foam so that she could make ghosts.  She had lots of fun building ghosts in her squishy foam.  It is SO soft but also very mold-able

Then things got really fun!  I gave Rosie a squirt bottle of vinegar, and she was suddenly transformed into a ghost buster!

This was her favorite part!  She had a blast hosing the ghosts to make them disappear

She made ghosts over and over just so that she could "bust them".  After she had used all of the vinegar we were left with another amazingly fun material to muck around in- ICY GHOST MUD!

 It felt exactly like mud, so that is what we called it while we played; it was super fun for making flying ghosts.  Add more vinegar and you can make the ghosts FIZZLE.  Oh, and this mud is icy cold, making it unique from the other ghost mud recipe we have shared.  

This activity was SO FUN!  Give it a try; the kids will love it!
