With the cold weather really coming in (don’t laugh, we have icicles!), we spend a lot more time coming up with creative ways to play. One thing I personally love doing is taking a bath and reading a book.  While my kids have inherited the bath part, they have not inherited the book part, so I try to give them something fun to do while in there!

So on a whim the other day with the regular old corn starch and water paints that I had given Phoenyx to play with in the tub, my eyes fell on the shaving cream on the counter.  I decided to mix up some of my husbands shaving cream with the food coloring on the next fill up and the result was a puffy fun paint that dissolved in the bathwater! This shaving cream bathtub paint gave us an hours worth of painting bath time enjoyment and the beauty is we can make more at any time!

And bonus is that it smells like my spouse….

Shaving Cream DIY Bath Paint

You need

  • Shaving Cream
  • Food coloring
  • muffin tin

step1

Fill up a muffin tin with a few squirts of shaving cream. I used white and blue and they both worked equally well and made bright colors, so no need to worry about the actual color of the cream. Use what you have!

step2Add your food coloring to each shaving cream puff and stir!  I use the type of food coloring that comes in little mini bowls rather than liquid, but I imagine it works well either way.

  1. I actually have all the supplies. Joy. We’re trying this tonight. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Do the colors stain the kids?

  3. Absolutely love this idea! Will pin it and do it this weekend with the kids!

  4. So much fun! Oh my goodness this is fantastic. Love how easy it is to make.

  5. My kids would love doing this! I love how easy it is, too!

  6. His expression TOTALLY is like he can’t even believe you’re seriously going to let this magic happen. Love it!

  7. Oh you are such an awesome mama. I have to do this with Zoe, she would love it!

  8. My kids struggle with bathtime. I think making it fun with something like this would be helpful. Where do you buy your food coloring in jars? That would save me a lot of trouble in a lot of different things I do.

  9. We do this all the time! The kids love it
