Step 1: Pick Your Colors

Add a couple of drops of natural food coloring to each section of a muffin tin or reusable container. I like to use muffin tins because your child can take it directly into the tub. It is easy to hold – like a large paint palette and is great for not dirtying a bunch of containers.

Step 2: Mix It Up

Add the shampoo and cornstarch to a bowl and thoroughly mix together.

Step 3: Mix the Paints

Add equal portions of paint mixture to each muffin tin section and mix until the colors are even.

Step 4: Rub a Dub in the Tub

Fill the tub, grab a paint brush and surprise your children with a fun art lesson in the tub. These paints are non-toxic and won’t hurt the environment or your children. If you are worried about the natural colorant staining the grout, only use the bath tub paints on the tub itself.
