Whether you have a child who loves to take a bath or one who is less than excited for bath time, bathtub paints are bound to make bath time more fun and possibly encourage you kid to beg for a bath. Read on to learn how to make your own easy organic bathtub paints that are non-toxic, safe for the environment and fun for your children, too.
What you will need:
- organic shampoo
- 4 tablespoons organic cornstarch
- natural food colorants
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.
