We are seriously itching for summer weather around here and have had to get a little creative this winter and spring to come up with some fun and easy activities to keep our little peanuts entertained indoors! The bathtub can be the perfect source of imagination and play for your peanuts and today we are sharing a fun DIY bathtub paint activity that is sure to be a huge hit at your home and provide some much need time of entertainment for your little peanuts! Bath time is a big part of our day and during these cold months we tend to take a couple of tubs a day… one for playing and fun and the other before bedtime. We hope this fun activity inspires you and helps pass some time at your house!
All you need to create your own bathtub paint are some basic items that you probably already have laying around the house! You will need a cupcake pan or other small bowls/cups to hold each color of paint, daddy’s shaving cream and some food coloring! Mix a few drops of food coloring into a mound of shaving cream and you have the perfect DIY bathtub paint! For an added activity let your little ones help in choosing the colors and mixing their very own color combinations.
Once your shaving cream paint is mixed head to the tub for some painting! You can use a paint brush you have at home or you can also use your hands. Let your peanuts go crazy painting your bathtub walls…. and maybe some toys as well!
One of the best parts of this artsy activity is the easy clean up! Just pour some water over the shaving cream paint and it washes right away! We hope this post inspires you to have a little fun in the tub today!
Stay tuned the rest of this week as we share more tub time ideas, products and our favorite hair products for peanuts. We are also having an amazing GIVEAWAY coming very soon that you wont want to miss!
