Homemade bath paint recipe
My daughter loves the texture of this homemade bath paint. It’s so quick and easy to make, with just two ingredients: shaving foam and food colouring.
We like to make it in an old muffin tin, which gives you a palette with a selection of colours.
All you need to do to make the bath paint is squirt a little shaving foam in each space of the muffin tin, and then stir in your colour. I like to use food colouring gels, as you only need to use a tiny little bit of colour.
And I like to leave a few spaces on the muffin tin palette empty, to encourage the children to try out some colour mixing of their own.
You can play with this paint on a wipe-able cloth on the table, on the yard floor, in the sink, or in the bathtub. And as it’s made with shaving foam, clean up is very easy as you can just wash it all away.
I have never had any of this homemade paint stain our bathtub, but I’d suggest you check out your brand of food colouring carefully just in case.
