For the Boys: Bath Paint

 Back in October, I wrote about how much fun Liam & Jack have taking Glow Baths-- I surprise the boys with them about once a month. They still love them, but it was time for something new!

I used an 88¢ can of sensitive skin foaming shaving cream & mixed it with a few drops of Wilton gel food coloring that I had left over from cookie baking. 

So easy, so cheap, so fun!!

I'll use slightly less food coloring next time-- I wasn't sure how much it would take to saturate the shaving cream and I found out that it didn't take very much! There was a little bit of color left on the tile once I sprayed off the "paint," but it came off immediately with Clorox Cleanup.

The boys had a blast and we'll definitely add this into our rotation of fun baths!


  1. This looks super fun! Can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have been wanting to do this with cool whip (Emerson's not quite old enough to not put shaving cream in his mouth, LOL) it looks like SO much fun! I'll have to post on it soon! You have inspired me!

    1. I had to remind Jack several times not to eat it!! Cool whip is a brilliant idea!!

  3. Looks like tons of fun. So you put them in the empty tub with the "paint" and then bathe it off them afterward? And what are you wearing while all this is going on, might I ask?

  4. I did put water in the tub originally, but I ended up draining it, rinsing them off with a cup & refilling the tub. I was wearing my mom uniform--lol-- yoga pants and a hoodie. I got a little paint on it, but it came out easily with a little oxyclean!

  5. You're such a great Mom! I love it and should definitely try this!!! Come visit! I'm back to blogging! :)
