Bath Paint

Like most people this winter, we have had a huge case of cabin fever.  It's so cold and there's so.much.snow!  This is definitely the harshest, coldest winter that I can ever remember.  And, being locked inside all day with a one and three year old had really tested my patience :)  So, I've been digging in my box of rainy day supplies to see what I can dig out.  Last week I decided to break out some shaving cream and food coloring.  Ta-da!  Bath paints!

Supplies:  (I bought all three of these items at the dollar store.  Score!)
Muffin tin (really anything will work)
Shaving cream
Food coloring

Fill the muffin tins with shaving cream and add a couple drops of food coloring to each mound of shaving cream.  Mix together (I used a toothpick) and have fun!

As no big surprise, Ashlyn was all over this!  She dove right in - she is definitely the more adventurous one of my two :)

Also as no surprise, Redmond was a big more cautious.  At first, he would look away every time I put the paint anywhere near him!
I finally convinced him to dip his toe in......and eventually his finger too!
It was a fun activity for both of the kids to be involved in and they both had a lot of fun.  Plus, it turned the bath water green which was so cool!
