Bath Time Paints

With summer activities in full swing, we have been collecting our fair share of dirt! These girls like to dig for worms, make mud pies and collect rocks just like their big brothers always did. They don't, however, want to stop their play to come inside for a bath! So, when the day is done I must wrangle to two dirt collectors in to scrub away the grime. But, I have found a new tool to make this process a bit easier....bath paint! It's very simple,

2 TBS. liquid soap or baby bath
food coloring

Mix it together and allow your little ones to paint a masterpiece on the shower walls! When they are finished, just rinse it down the drain! Bath time suddenly has become a whole lot easier:0)

  2. Great idea! We've done paint with shaving cream before, but this looks like it might work better. We'll have to give it a try.

  7. Lets hope I can do this. Last time I tried to leave a message and my computer said Operations Aborted.

    Cool idea. I used Crayola Bath Crayons once and I had to scrub it off. This looks easy to take off.
