Kid Bath Paint

19 Feb

Aleah and Sophi were sick and Aleah had to stay home from school which majorly bummed her out.  Soooooo, mommykins to the rescue!

I wanted to give them a bath to get their snotty noses cleared out and also wanted it to be special.

Cue the kid bath paint. Here is how you make it:

2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/3 c. liquid kid soap
Several drops food colouring
Smidge of water to get a good paint consistency


The kids looooved it.  And I had to pry them out of the tub because the water wasn’t exactly warm by the time the paint ran out.

And one bonus side effect that I didn’t see coming was the tub was squeaky clean when they were done!  All that soap and scrubbing really did my bathroom some good!  Yay, finally a craft that got something clean instead of making me clean up afterwards for hours.



look at those suds

    Brilliant! What a great idea. I hope they’re feeling better. If not, just break out a new box of band aids for whatever ails them! I hear it even works for earaches.
