Bath Paints

 

This game is an all-time favorite with our children, but merits a few words of caution. If you have ceramic tile in your bathtub area, you may want to skip this one, as the food coloring may stain the grout. If your child has sensitive skin, the shaving cream (depending on the brand) can cause irritation. In any case, children will almost certainly need another bath after this activity!

Materials
  • Shaving cream
  • Food coloring
  • Muffin tin
  • Spoon
  • Paintbrushes or sponge

Directions

  1. Squirt shaving cream into the individual sections of a muffin tin.
  2. Add a few drops of food coloring to each section and mix with a spoon. The kids will love painting the walls, the tub, and themselves with their hands, a sponge, or paintbrushes. Older children will enjoy mixing the colors to create new ones.
  3. Clean up is easy when the fun ends--just hose down the tub, with your child in it!
