If you've ever seen the movie Hook then you'll remember the food fight scene. The food doesn't look quite like real food, mostly colorful blobs. While doing my bath paint activity (I got the idea from Having Fun at Home), my husband pointed the similarity out to me. So he named it "Bangarang Bath Paint."
It was really quite simple. All you need is shaving cream, food coloring, and a muffin tin or some other container.
First, put some shaving cream into each spot in the muffin tin. Then put some food coloring onto each blob of shaving cream and mix each one. You can make a bunch of colors depending on how much food coloring you have. It's just that easy!
Once Zel was in the bath tub, I showed him what the paint was for and then handed him the brush (We just used a regular paint brush). He loved it! What could be more fun than bath time? Making a mess in the bath tub, of course! He would carefully dip the paint brush into the tin but then repeatedly bang the brush against the side of the tub as hard as he could.
Clean up was very easy. Just use your shower head to rinse off your child and the tub.
No children or bathtubs were stained in the making of this blog post.
