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
- Shaving Cream
- Food coloring
- muffin tin
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!
Add 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.
That’s it! No step 3….step 3 is add some paintbrushes, deliver to your bathtub, and PLAY!!!!!!!!! The best part is that if there is any left in your tins, just rinse down the drain.
