Fluffy Bath Paint

Mini Thor used to loooooove taking a bath and wanted to take several baths a day, but suddenly he refuses to take a bath! I don’t know what caused the change, but seriously, little boys NEED baths! They play in the mud and dig in the dirt, find bugs, and collect rocks…being a boy is messy business! I’ve had to come up with a few ways to bribe him to take a bath make bath time more fun! One of those fun things is Fluffy Paint!

These paints are super simple to make; they are just shaving cream + food coloring! A fellow momma to a sensory kid told me she tried this with her little boys (shout out to M.J.) and I just had to give it a whirl!
You can mix them up in an ice cube tray, muffin tin, or in our case the jello Jigglers mold from our “Monsteriffic Jellotastic Movie Night”, pretty anything with sections will do.

Spray shaving cream into each section and add 1-2 drops of food coloring. Stir together the two ingredients and you’ve got fluffy bath paints!

They are fun for painting the tub walls…and also adding hair-dos to rubber duckies!

P.S. Try some of our those bath time favs…
Like these bath paints
Or have a snow day in the tub!
Or maybe a glow bath like we have done many times. Just put glowsticks the bottom of the tub during a bubble bath!
