Make it Monday: Homemade Bath Paint

Homemade Bath Paint

Homemade Bath Paint

     The first time I wanted to look into making tub-paints (like it isn’t hard enough getting my daughter out of the bath tub!) I found this recipe

     1 TBSP corn starch (more if you want thicker consistency) 
     1/3 cup dish detergent (eco-friendly is better for little ones’ skin)
     food coloring (a drop will go a long way!) 

  However, while this recipe was all well and good and pretty cheap, I’ve found an even easier solution. Just use shaving cream!

     You can buy a can of shaving cream for about $1 and it lasts a while. I sprayed about 2/3 cup into a small storage container and add a drop of food coloring. 

     And there you have it. You got the fun, gooey consistency your kids (and I must admit, I) love! It’s easy to make and to clean up. Only thing is, it doesn’t really keep, so don’t try to make extra for next time, because it will dissolve.
     My daughter loved both of them, so I recommend you try out these cheap and easy recipes

  2. OH the grandkids will love this

  3. Well, I must make this. I put fizzies in the boys bath tonight because we had run out of bath paint. I wish I had read this before their bath time but I will have it ready for tomorrow. Thanks for this great article and the wonderful money saving tip. Can’t wait to try it.

  4. Thank you for sharing, my daughter would love this. For a edible version I have seen you can use whip cream. I haven’t tried it yet though.
